Default WC TROPHEUS RR KANTALAMBA

http://youtu.be/lEUG9ZReWjU





Ive been admiring RR for years now, but wanted a different variant than Kasanga. I was able to get my hands on a group of 40(10m:30f) Red Rainbow Kantalamba, and I am impressed. When I opened the box their entire bodies were bright yellow and head and fins were strawberry red. I thought they were illangi initially. Once i got them in the tank they all transformed back to RR. I have had them in a quarentine tank for three weeks now and hopefully they will give me that fresh out the bag look once again once they are conditioned properly. My plans are to put them in my 220 once i finish making the background. Please watch in 720p or highest quality.

Nice Troy.

The first letter in the 11 didgit code you put as an upper case "i" instead of a lower case "l"

Nice looking group.

Reminds me of first group.

They look great! Where did you get them? You dont see that locality around very much, if ever.

Congrats on the very nice group! Make sure to shoot another video in another month or two from now.

Appreciate it John. I got these from Tom. I was skeptical at first until he sent me two pics, then i was sold. He said they were nice, and they seem to keep getting nicer. Definitely will take another vid when i get them settled in their new home.

I noticed the red dorsal fins leading edge is a deep blue/purple hue making them look black when closed. Very interesting , Very nice variant.

I see you have a great eye to detail! They sure do and the dorsal fins have alot of blue in them, but its hard to see from the video. Im just using my cell phone, have to invest in a nice dslr camera.
