    Default Beautiful Wilds from Gabe at Whatleys

    Just received 4 wild royals from 6 to 7 inch.
    In quarantine now and being treated for pests.
    Ate an hour after acclamation and absolutely gorgeous.
    Pictures in a few days.

    Gave told me he has a couple of hundred just out of quarantine.
    Call him directly as his site hasnít been updated.

    These fish, for their price, around 200, much much better than the wilds offered on eBay.

    I was in his hatchery last week and they are looking amazing, you won't be disappointed. Although for me is worthy the drive and pick my own fish. overall they are all good looking. He also has some nice domestics, Altum Angels and some nice companions fish like Adolfoi Cories etc.
    Julian.
    Breeding , interest and goals Wilds Heckels and Cuipeuas and a few Domestics pairs with occasional fry as well as Angels fancy Plecos , corys and shrimps.

    Andy, That fish has a lot of potential once it settles in and colors up. Hope to see more pics over time. Congrats on your new fish.

    Almost didn't want to respond because I lost both heckels and a really nice royal due to a heater malfunction in my quarantine tank. The temp probe from the inkbird controller popped out of the water after a water change. Almost 100 degrees but several survived.

    Was heartbroken but I did learn a lesson. Setting up a Neptune Apex controller this weekend.

    Just received this guy but will be awhile before this sting goes away

    What a royal bummer! I'm sorry to hear that Andy! The fish you posted looks like it will be a real stunner when it settles in and colors up.

    Andy, sorry to hear the sad news. Your new fish does look great. Can you tell me about the heckles? We’re they also from Gabe?
