Apisto juvies!

Here are some poor shots of my Motherís Day present: some very young Microgeophagus Ramirezi Cichlids from wild parents! I got seven, and they are about a half inch long, a couple a little longer but not much.

They are super hard to photograph because they are pretty small and still really skittish. But Iím too excited not to post pics now, even if they arenít that good of a shot.

The bottom photo is a shot of the parents from the breeder.

Yeah, I'm not so sure I'm going to let these pair off. I may sell a few off after they are sexable.

Are you planning to breed your apistos when you get them?

Those are very nice looking fish. They're GBR's, not apistos though.

Yeah, I know that. I'm just showing my age. Back in the day, almost all dwarf cichlids were classified as apistos and I still think of them as such.

I was super excited and after I posted I knew someone would tag me on that

These fry are f2 from unrelated wild parents, so they don't have that brilliant blue of the gbr most widely available commercially.

I'm hoping they'll be less delicate than what's available at LFS.
