Victorian cichlid keepers?

Hey guys, just wanted to see if there were any cichlid keepers around the Philly area.
I currently have a tank with a colony of Paralabidochromis chromogynos, i had 2 females that were holding at the same time. My one female just spit and now i have at least 15 fry, was expecting maybe a handful due to her size.

My other female will likely spit in a day or so, and she is twice the size of the other one lol.

There is no way i can raise all these fry, if anyone is interested in some and you can pick up them up once they mature a little, i will gladly give them to you. Ill try and get a few pics tonight.

Please let me know if your interested, i will not ship these guys. Must be picked up, thanks.

These are cool looking fish. Have you considered joining a club like DCAS or BCAS? I'm sure you can find takers there.

I'd love some but have no tank space. Good luck and THANK YOU for offerring to share.
