    I have been searching for these guys for about 4 months and finally "sniped" some off of AB. I don't have pics of the fish( they are rather washed out right now and are drip acclimating in a tub. I do have a pic of the parents though and these are freakin beautiful dwarf cichlids!!!!

    Amazing! My buddy was breeding these a couple years ago! They have amazing colors and are fun to watch! Pretty easy to breed too!

    Thanks for the responses!!

    daphilster08~ From my research they do breed easy and are very mellow when breeding compared to other dwarf cichlids like kribs.

    dixie~ you had the "Moliwe" variant? I wish I would have known, I would have hit you up for these and saved hours of searching for em!

    rockhoe14er~ I got 6 of these so I can start breeding these and other non KAR( krib,apisto,ram) dwarfs. I am wanting to get some of the "Kienke" variant. The males have more pink in that variant. First though, I will be getting some A. thomasi that are from the TFH Breeders Cup Challenge!!!

    I am so darned worried that I did a 3 hour drip on these. Overkill or cautious?

    rwilliams254~ thanks, that was my first thought when I saw them. It made me wait FOREVER to hope they came up again.

    tolawdjk~ I will start a thread when I get them into there 20long that will be planted.

    Will do. The largest might be an inch right now but I expect alot of growth since I will be feeding 2-3 times daily and at least one of those feedings will be br.shrimp/bloodworms,etc.
