wow, what a deal!!! my LFS sells the same ones for 60 bucks each 100bucks a pair! I still want some though. He said he could order me in some lower quality ones in and give them to me for 9 bucks which i think is still pretty good.

I'm guessing they went inot the 75gal? that will be perfect for in there, hopefully you get the breeding!

yea in my 75

100 bucks a pair!! i do not know if i will breed them, right now i do not have a breeding tank, and i doubt that if they do breed the fry will survive in a community tank, maybe if they show signs of wanting to breed i will pick up an extra tank...

they become very agressive while breeding, so whatch out for that.

And yes, 100 bucka a pair, they were wild caught though, and that is a canadian price.

that is what i was thinking too so as they grow i might need to get ride of two of the males to keep aggression down...

I am not experienced with apistos but seems like you have 3 males and 2 females. I know that the females aren't as brightly colored as the males are.
