The lentiginosus are from Germany and the Socolofi are from Rapps and he got them from Rusty Wessel. ;)

Why is it that you can get Lentiginosus in europe fairly easily and they are non existent here in the states. My favorite fish! Great tank.
Current stock-2 F1 Breeding pairs of Chuco Micropthalmus, F1 Theraps Lentiginosum (2 breeding pairs), Theraps Coeruleus (1 breeding pair), 7 5-8" F0 Ornatum "Rio Choco", 2 Beani "White" and about 400 Micropthalmus fry!

They are not easy to get here, i don't see them for sale in shops.. i had some luck that i got a tip that they where for sale somewhere.
We brought also some to the UK to Rick ;) So they will come there also around 8)

Now i need to get coeruleus.. ;)

I had also some Lentiginosus from Rio corzo these are now by a friend.. we will try to spawn them to get these also around.

Gorgeous fish! Love the lents and I thank you for swapping me some fish for the lents.....................

They are doing well, all 12 still happy and eating like pigs............... any food doesn't even hit the bottom............. Little and often feeds, hoping they'll grow into beauties! :)

I hope I can breed these and share them with my fellow cichlidiots the world round! :)
