    Default Tony Tan Tank Bred Altums

    I have a opportunity to bring Tony Tan's Tank Bred Altums into the States.

    I would have to have a large response from the Simply family along with pre-orders to pursue this opportunity. The price for the larger Altums they offer, 3.5 cm body size would be around $40.00. Again I would have to have a very large response to even consider because of the large quanity they require me to buy.

    Even if you are not interested the picture they sent me are very nice.

    Hey Kraig,
    Hope you've been well my friend! Those are some very nice looking Angels....very very nice!! I have yet to see anyone breeding Altums on a commercial scale like that....If these are really F1 Altums, thats some nice work indeed!

    Any chance we can get some pics of the Adults here...I would really like to see some Adult altums with fry...that would be an awesome sight!

    I didn't realize Tony Tan was working on breeding Altums....Alls I can is Pics and pics please...the more the better!

    thanks,
    al

    I will try to get pictures of the adults, may take awhile as they travel a lot and don’t always get right back to me. They have sold many of these in europe but none here in the states. If I do get a order it will be at least a month away. They have a thousand fish minimum order at the moment.

    I am feeling great after the surgery thanks for asking Al.

    Kraig,

    Jeff Rapps of Tangled Up In Cichlids brought some altums in this past week. They were sold for $45 at dime size and he sold out within a week. I am not sure how many he had.

    The only thing I have seen with some of these tank-raised altums is that their bars are incomplete. I am not sure what causes this, but I've seen it in tons of the F2 fish that have been posted in videos and pictures. Otherwise, they are definitely altums. I don't know if the formation of the bars are genetic, environmental, or a combination of the two.

    I wouldn't mind trying a few if I had a much larger tank, but at that price I'm afraid I'll have to sit this one out.

    Thats too bad about the fry, It would have been something really great to see, but understandable.....These juveniles look excellent, I'm looking forward to seeing photos of the wild pair! Thanks so much!!

    This are some photo of our bigger fish. their bar is ok, i think the bar depend a lot of the water color. the water is tea black at their natural habitat, that force them to show more black of thir bar to camoflust themself.
