Not really

The Fx system comes from crossing experiments in genetic sciences. There F0 is wrong, and should be P, as the parent generation gives offspring (filia in Latin, hence the F)

We however do not intent to cross at all, and therefore all generations are supposed to be similar. Further, we see a contimuum between the fish in the wild, and the fiosh we have in captivity

Therefor I would not know which generation is the parent generation. Thus we start with the zeroth generation offspring, which were collected in the wild - F0

Well, here is a update of how it's goes the brand new fry of my Paratheraps sp Coatzacoalcos, at the beginning I thought that they had eaten all the eggs because in the flagstone only was remaining just one egg but the attention was calling myself very much that the parents continued protecting the territory and their fry coloration, 3 days after I saw the little fishes swimming, I leave a few new pictures of them.

Wow... what great looking fish!! I'd be ineterested to see their non-breeding coloration. The Paratheraps species all change so dramatically when breeding that many look like a totally different specie.

More pics please!!
$200 is a lot of money for such a plain brown fish. It must be really rare. I'll take 4!!

Very nice indeed. How big is the tank? It looks rather large. How about a picture of the whole tank?

Are you in the U.S.? If so I'd love to get some fry from you.

Thanks for the pictures, they are beautiful fish, I see they have been growing nicely, they will become even bluer as they grow more. I just had to give away some P. sp 'coatzacoalcos' I have due to my aquarium slimming down, probably some day I will keep them again...
