Default Buy or Not 10 WC Tropheus Moorii Ilangi

I just saw an add for 10 WC Moorii Illangis for 300$,They are 5" long between 2 and 3 yrs old.Should i jump on it or wait.Very rare around here.I'm freaking because i really want a WC colony.Also says they breed many fry.What's the consensus with this???

10 for 300 bucks is a steal, you'll need to check them out first whether they are what's being advertised. I mean if they are really ilangi I'll jump on it right away!!

Not really a large enough colony IMO to diffuse aggression. What size tank do you have in mind for them and are these being added to a current group that you have? Also, is the ratio stated?

For me $300 for 10 of 5 inch is good deal for WC Ilangi, But I will not buy group of 10 with unknown ration and it a small group you will have to deal aggress fish when they start breed. It just me , I don't like to buy fish 5 inch or more, because the stage to breed at 3.5 to 4 inch and they breed like a rabbit and also you can see them grown that is the best part to keep fish. I have small Lufubu ( 10 of 5.5 inch ) and they just stay the same size and it take me 6 months to get first fry form them. Don't get me wrong as they 5 inch full color and beautiful to show.
I am sorry because you living in Canada don't have much choice. If you living US and you like Ilangi fry and it is available in this forum Like VinnyNguyen, Chrishem and Rivet-10 have some for sale from $10 to $15 ( You get 20 to 30 for the same amount money) and it is just my thought.
This my small group Lufubu it feel blank in the tank and I cannot wait to the fry grown to 2 inch so I can put them in there by then the tank will look better.

Ratio is 3 males 7 females as of now. I understand your point too about seeing them grow and have fry. Remember the fry will also be F1 which i can keep and build another huge colony or sell them and recuperate my expenses.Something to think about.

As you know the ratio 3M7F that is a good ratio and it will take you a little time to build huge colony. I am sure you are already set your mind to buy it so if you get them please post some pic or video because I love Ilangi too.
