I currently have three clutches of Rio Tapajos that i am growing out and the first will be available soon for sale. I have not decided on a price yet but i am open to fair offers. My first clutch is just about 1 inch right now and i have about 120 of them, there are at least that in each of the next two batches, if not more because of mouth-brooding success rate. They keep getting better at it.

Let me know if you are interested, i just thought i would put some feelers out there to see if anyone wants some. I am located in ventura and the fish are still at my old place with my cousin in Orange County, CA.

Here are some pics of mom. Dad is gorgeous, i'll add some pics of him this weekend. I haven't been to back home, to Orange County lately. That is where i left them because i didn't want to move them in the middle of their spawns. They are under excellent care with my cousin. They should be ready in the next month. The babies are about 1/2 - 3/4 of an inch. I just need to pick out a group for myself first. It is pretty difficult to count but I think there are around 125.

Here is the first day they were separated from mama. July 10. About 20 days into her first mouth-brooding hatch
