Alex, no they did not, but my robertsoni did :lol:

Seriously, and I'm happy they did it, because I know I can sell 60 or more of the fry

Congrats on Robertsoni Bas. As for Rostratus I don't know any one currently who breed these guys in US.

Hi guys,
not many cichlids on this trip as we mostly worked in springs and caves. Maybe some of you will enjoy nonetheless:

Hi Michael,
the species is considered endangered because it is endemic to two small sulfidic springs in Tabasco and Chiapas. Because their distribution only spans a few football fields, the species is vulnerable to human disturbance and habitat modification.
Cheers, Michi
