WC Hemichromis Elongatus (Nigeria)

Post  Will I am on 2014-01-23, 19:52

Just a quick vid on the 5 star generals I picked up from this group buy. Specimens are stunning and are already developing reds in the middle of their bodies. So happy and hoping to get a pair out of these.

Enjoy

Can't wait for you to establish a local breeding program for these!

These will be an exciting group to watch mature. I hope you end up with a great pair as I can't wait to see those spectacular spawning colors. Keep us posted as they grow. Nice choice...I had not read about these before and found the writings very interesting. Thanks for sharing. Good luck with the growing up!

Nice looking fish! (I like that wood you have in there as well.)  Good luck with the pairing.

Thanks everyone! I'll be posting more pics soon! Few of them are coloring up pretty nice already. Aggression is starting to take place now that they've settled in a little bit. I'll try to post pics later.

Aggression, already? Man, even these micro versions of your others are nasty buggers!  

And now that it's the weekend, open that photobucket account so that we can all enjoy the pics!  Very Happy

Now you just need to squeeze in a smaller tank for their dwarf look a likes to complete the circle.

Quick update on my WC H. Elongatus. I have a pair. Moved them into my 90g. They're about 4" now. No luck on any eggs yet. Trying to be patient with them.

I did have 2 pairs. For some reason, the 2nd pairs bond broke... It sucks to because the female from that pair just has some stunning reds on her. I'll be posting them for sale here shortly. I don't the room for them as I have come across H. Frempongi so I need the space...
