    Nice Larry! I've always had a soft spot for Frotosas. I had some Wild caught Zaire Blues years ago that were a lot of fun.

    Agree, very nice Larry. I reckon cypho's are the discus of Lake Tanganyika...slow moving, graceful, and very beautiful!
    Here's my previous Kapampa group;

    Nice Larry. Did you raise them to breeding age/size? I got mine at 2-3" and sold them at 5-9" before they reached breeding age. They're slow growers as you'd know, and it's a shame it takes 3-4 yrs for them to reach breeding maturity...they do test ones patience in that respect, but they're graceful and majestic to watch glide through the water. I have a group of 7 mikula that I am currently growing out but they're in a tank I maintenance at the men rehab accommodation my church runs. They were 1.5-2" when I got them and are about 3-3.5" atm.
