Sweet Striking, I love Noth East PA. Gotta love the wine from there!!

On the pics, as soon as I can figure out how to post some I will. I am also on 3 other sites but ran across this one tonight and noticed allot more members closer to me. I love to trade fry and would be nice to find some closer Chiclid Owners.

That was my first batch from the wild Masinje's. They had two batches of 48 total fry. When the female began her third cycle the male died out of the blue. Research has told me it is common for wilds to breed and suddenly die for no apparent reason. These guys tested me from day one. I had to feed them frozen foods because they would not eat flakes or nothing. Luckly I learned from a great guy I never even thought to get his name. But in all honesty he saved my wilds and gave me enough knowledge to get them to breed. It took 2 1/2 years but I have the fry to prove I did. Plus Atlantis will verify my wild strain of Masinje's. I am very much pure bloodlines, but have an open mind to hybrids too. Although I have very few, I understand it is a growing market. But protecting the bloodlines and keeping them pure is just as important.

Thanks Everyone for the compliments

Some Fish I had to sell to make room for more breeding groups:


Bought this guy as an Apache Chiclid, Never did find out what he was. Well other then mean.


Same fish in Spawning colors. He was not usually this color, usually much darker

Perseverance is often the path to the greatest rewards. Even if you are the only one that understand the troubles it took to get fry you can always feel good knowing you accomplished something like that.

Thanks, The Masinje's have not been for sale since 2009. I have talked to 4 people who have tried to breed them and failed. I am working with one person now to help get them to breed. I hope I can do it twice for the species sake. But I will be back with 2 breeding groups soon. Plus I am getting 2 more of the Chitande Types. With all my research I only know of 6 types and I now have 3 of them. So it is a great thing for the Chitande's.

The Virginalis I will be getting in a few months. They are small and that is why I posted as trades made. As soon as I get them in I will post the pics of them. Going to get kinda busy around here with fish coming and going.

Thanks for the warm welcome on here.
