Did I blame Jolley in my post? I can't remember, but yeah, it's his fault when he helped me save my sick bembas. :fies010:

Well, i would say Klaus really got me hooked to tropheus. I was originally supposed to get ilangi, but something happened, and i got malagarasi, which i do not regret!!

Bentho, nice to see someone besides me breeds malagarasi. Got pics?

25 years ago. I kept cental american cichlids and a Malawi Tank and a vic tank. Found the only direct importer in the UK of Malawis a shop in the Middle of no where called Thringstone aquatics. He had some Troph in from Holland. Blew my mind and pocket book. Traided all my other non Troph compatable fish for his Troph. Started with 3 foots and four foots mixed Troph but soon moved to five foot tanks. One variety per tank. Had a recent time trying mixes of Troph again in 7 foots but am going back to one type of Troph per tank.
Real reverlation coming on line this year (Got a comp for the kids). All the advice and Troph breeders just waiting to be contacted.

When I was little my dad used to raise livebearers. He always had the best and would sell them to local pet shops. After I got married, and my wife and I picked up a 29g setup at Walmart. I started like my dad with some tropicals, but cichlids caught my eye. The 29 went up on eBay($150) and I found a complete 55($130) in the local paper. Soon that went on eBay as I upgraded to a 75($75). Soon I discovered frontosas and I sold the 75($250) for a 125($125.) My wife went along with it as, since it wasn't really costing much to upgrade tanks. Along the way I've picked up some smaller tanks, and recently bought a brand new 75g complete setup. After some research on T's, I had to have some and they now reside in that 75g setup.

Six tanks up and running:
125g Mpimbwe frontosa, clown loaches, orange head tapajo
75g Tropheus duboisi maswa, pseudotropheus saulosi, lelupi, petricola
30g Ngara flametail, gold face comps
30g growout tapajo, mpimbwe
20g growout ngara albinos, comps
10g growout saulosi

Like many others here:

I had interest in Tropheus for a very long time, but didn't think I knew enough to keep them. Then I got talking with Klaus and looking at his pictures........ I bought the Aqualog book and ordered some Kasakalawe and then it started! I really enjoy these guys. Thanks Klaus!

I'm another one to blame Klaus! I was only keeping cichlids for three months when I met him on ACF, then I saw some tropheus at a mutual friends and really fell in love!!! Now I have 3 colonies with a 4th to come, and the only thing holding me back is that I have some nice malawis and fronts taking up other tanks...otherwise you'd really see a whole house full of snubby noses!
