Default Dubs Dubs Dubs

One of my most beloved Trophs here, I was looking back into my previous posts and my original thread on this site was regarding my first group - Duboisi Maswa. I loved that group, got screwed when I sold them because I was new and didnt know what they were worth. Now theyre for sale as adults... Back to the point lol

http://youtu.be/KuPo3x1X1GU

This video was taken a little early, in the middle I focus on one of the newest members of the group that reminds me of a Panda for some reason. It has a half black face with no spots and the other side of its face is normal and beautiful. The newest 10 I picked up are the smallest ones. The other 18-20 are beginning to get a band coming in they came in early December as 1/2" to 3/4" babies, for 20 of them I paid $110.

This group is amuses me, whenever I walk by they get super excited and go somewhat brown because they know they are getting food, then once they get the food and are happy again, they are pitch black with amazing spots, I feed them and they return the favor with a show. It really is cool watching this happen! My youngest ten always stay pitch black though. This is one of my favorite groups, for as long as I keep fish I will never be without Duboisi thats for sure!

They are housed in a 75 gallon 4 foot tank, filtered by an Aquaclear 70, 2 sponges and heated by a Jager 300 w heater, they are on playsand and have half a blue background, I didnt do the other side becasue thats where the Aquaclear was and my paint froze in the can during the move sadly so hopefully this weekend I can finish that side up because I hate it. I have a second video which I will add in a bit. Enjoy!

The First tropheus I ever saw was a Duboisi... Unfortunately my sister that got it, didn't realize that it needed a special diet and she killed it by feeding it the wrong food. But from that point forward it stuck with me.

Maswa are my Favorite!

P.S. Just did these things to your link so that it would work..
1. www
2. removed the "." from between the "u" and the "b" in youtube.
3. added "watch?v=" after the last forward slash.

AWESOME Fry my friend! Good for you for getting some new little ones. Lookinf forward to part 2, 3 etc...

My first colony was kachese. Lost them in a house fire. I'm gonna get some dubs one day. A big group of about 40. I'm incapable of growing out fry in a tank by themselves so if I get a chance at an adult colony I might take them.

Thanks a lot everyone, I appreciate the compliments

Crazy... If you are interested in some of the fry from the WC dubs, I can forward you his email, hes my age, kind of new to Trophs but has 7 different Duboisi fry tanks!

Longdrag I am a huge fan as well

Mike, I managed to only lose 3-4 in my first group, still regret selling those guys, and then my last group passed away in my house fire, hopefully I finally reach adulthood with these guys. You know what they say, third times the charm

Mogan, I know the feeling on the house fire, not something I would ever wish on someone, especially a fellow fish addict, no matter how much they ticked me off.

Andrew thanks for video fix again, sorry about that but I appreciate the help

Curt, I love the contrast, sadly the Leleupi are going to be going into my 6 foot show tank because I dont want them stealing eggs, but eventually the Leleupis will get their own tank.
