Default Topheus OB Golden Kalambo

Hello all. Just wanted to share some pics of my new additions. After 10 long months of leg work and organizing I finally imported a large group of Tropheus OB Golden Kalambo. These are F1 from OB Golden Parents. I was lucky enough to get a 4 inch male who is just starting to mutate into a golden. I got 80 total juvies 40 are 2.5 inches and 40 are 1-1.5 inches. If I am lucky 10% of the 80 will mutate into OB or Goldens. The rest that do not mutate still have the gene so I will work with them once they start breeding. Once they mature I will separate the OB's And Goldens and form a group and then work the others to. I was told that once they start getting 3-3.5 inches that the mutations will begin and am looking forward to documenting this process. In some of the larger juvies I can see yellow starting to come in the dorsal which is a good sign that these could mutate into goldens. Anyways here are some pics. I will update this thread as they grow. My camera is not great and does not capture how cool the male is. The tips of his tailfin is turning yellow, his pectoral fins have turned yellow, yellow is starting in his dorsal and anal fins and his eyes are red. He has a lot of white around the mouth and I was told that the more white around the mouth usually means the crazier the mutation will be.

Good luck with them Butch! There should be a large and profitable market for Goldens.
