Default 1st Batches of Tropheus Sp. Black Pemba

Hey Gang, these are the first three spawns from my Wild Caught Pemba from Greg and the F1 Males that I got from Verna (aka: nutsforcichlids) a while back. Which are also from Gregs wild hand picked colonies.

There are 6 total Pemba in the main tank with other odd ball fish...

I'm going to be growing these 28 out and keeping the females with a different F1 male. At least that's my plan. If I can find some nice wild males that would be ideal.

Anyway, they seem to have a nice orange glow to them already with nice barring which might not be completely visible in the video. But I will post updated video fo them as they grow.

I will be posting some good shots of the parents here as well soon to show the moderate quality that they are coming from.

I'm hoping that I'll get some decent looking fry from them to work with.

Okay so I wanted to get a good video of what these little guys are looking like at this point and so far so good. Can't believe some of the color that is coming out of these males right now!? I was recently asked to post photos of them showing their stripes developing and that didn't do them justice to what they can do. This video should better represent what I'm seeing. Thanks for looking.

Take a look...

Nice! Clean pembas would be an awesome tank of fish to have! Pam's were amazing if I remember correctly.

I agree. I hoping for some good genetics. Pams group is very nice. One of the best I've seen.

I'll be posting a couple of photos and a video in a few... Once the video is done being uploaded ot my Channel.

I think that they could look better if they were in a brighter tank with a blue background. Which may happen soon. I have more shuffling of tanks to do.
