Blue Finned Kribs for sale or trade (picture)


I have young Blue Finned Kribs for sale or trade for plants.
I would like to sell as groups of 6. Some of them are coloring
up now. If you're interested message me. Actually not sure what
to charge for them. asking $20 for 6 or more. I have 20 in a 10g
and mom and pop look like they're getting ready to have some more!

These are the parents and the babys when they were about 2 weeks old. Most of the babies are about 1" or so, those are the ones I was able to get out of the tank early, the others are smaller but will of course grow. They are coloring up now.

I'm sorry I just saw this, been a bit busy this week.

Anyhow, I'm not sure. I got the parents from Mr. Limpet last year I'll ask him. It doesn't really matter to me, I just liked them.

Just went to the BAS forum to check, they are taeniatus, Lokoundje

I just checked the tank, looks like mom is leading around a brand new bunch of fry! Looks like close to 30, hard to count. At least the others are going to homes and what's left will go to the BAS auction in April. The parents actually seemed to take off about a month before they decided to mate again, thank god!

Enigmatochromis lucanusi, even rarer than P taeniatus. I've been trying to get my taeniatus to breed for some time now, but so far nada. First pic is of the BFKs, second is my male P.taeniatus Dehane, third my female Dehane.
