photographed on Saturday at a fellow hobbyist in southern Germany. It's one female WC Ikola OB among a group of regular Ikolas.

Hi Carsten,

the guy is active on the German forum but i don't think you know him. He has 8-9 Tropheus WC groups and yes there's fry of the female OB swimming in the tank. But they do not show any sign of a morph yet, too young. He lets the females usually spit in the tanks (not a fan at all of shaking or egg tumbling) and it will probably take some time before a fry gets big enough to show signs of an OB. But i will follow this. I'm sure we will see some sooner or later.

I also see that some of Matze's Kalambo tank raised start changing colour and turn into OBs.
