Hey has anyone kept this variant or know of someone who keeps them? I've been doing some research on them and most of the colonies I see don't have to much consistency as far as the yellow and red coloring. I know Greg has had some in the past. Thanks.

Yeah its the old red saddle, been around along time, but not the most popular, some nice reds, but other trophs have so much more they just never have seemed to be too popular.

What do you mean by still left? Did you have more and something happened to the rest? If you did have a colony, how did the red/yellow look on the fish through out the colony? Were they consistent or was there some variations with the colors? Also do you have any pics of the two males you currently have? Are they wild caught? Please forgive all my questions, its just good to hear that somebody is actually keeping these.

I think it is because they were very popular in 90's and then all these new variants have come in and people sell their old groups to get new stuff, and importers don't have room for something so "common". I think they are really nice, I have had them off and on for many years, I have about 18-20 now and I am excited to breed them and increase the size of my group.

Cichlid Power!

Ah man, I'm starting to get excited! Good to hear that these are still out there and thriving! Pam would you happen to have any pictures that you can post and what size are the ones you have currently? If I were to get some of these, I would love to see what I have to look forward too.

I agree. Would be nice fish to breed to perfection... Pams got that under control though.

Interesting thread mate.

I looked into these guys here in australia earlier this year and pretty much got the same answers as you've received.

So popular once, but yet no body here in aus seems to have them!!

I too would love to see a recent pic of a colony as my questions pretty much lined up with yours.
