Pseudotropheus demasoni

What do you do when you get 5 Pseudotropheus demasoni for the price of 4 (each marked as $14.97) and you end up paying $19.88 for all of them. You run the hell out of the store and jump for joy!! That is what you do. The clerk didn't see the "1" but saw the "$4.97" so that was a big score ... 5 1" Pseudotropheus demasoni for $19.88 .... can't beat THAT deal! My 15 gallon tank now looks awesome with them in it!

Congrats!

I LOVE Pseudotropheus demasoni!! No pics yet?? How big are they?

I saw some P. demasoni fry at the hatchery a few weeks ago. The smallest one was about 1/8 inch long. Hope it could hide well!

I like them....they were the ones that had the pair of Polycentropsis in a tank with no label, and when I asked them 'how much', the chap said "Make me an offer"...I offered $5 for the pair, and now they are living happily in one of my 'pantry tanks'.

A slightly sunken belly is not unusual, but treat for parasites if your good home cookin' doesn't turn them around. Congrats! Love 'em!

The empty tank I saw at Shawnessy tonight had $15.97 each marked on it...so you got an even better deal (although I did notice some local F0 demasoni a few tanks over for $54 each).
