Hi, Im new to OCA. I live in Parma. Ive been keeping african cichlids for about 25 years. Just joined OCA the other day while bored at jury duty.
I am keeping Tropheus Red Rainbows, Bemba, Duboisi, and Red Ndole. Also some gold Occies.

No Occie fry yet. I do have a pair. I started with six, 4 were killed. Just got my first two red rainbow fry yesterday.

Ive had the Occies for a few months. I started with six but am now down to a pair. No fry yet. Just got my first two red rainbow fry. I'm able to receive PMs but cannot answer them yet. I must be on probation.

All my Tropheus are breeding like crazy. My red rainbows produced their first fry a few weeks ago too. I could get tons of Duboisi and Bemba but it is too difficult to get them out of the tank. I let them spit in the tank now. Only the strong survive.

I could be well worth the effort to get the fry out of the tank to help support your hobby. I'm sure they would be an easy sale, even if you just sell the at the meetings. :D
