Default Kapampa Lime Spots

Thank you Greg LAA! I began with a small group (2M 7F) with the intention of adding more if aggression was an issue, but they are at peace in this 55g Greg has 20 more of these, grab 'em!

Man just recently watched some YouTube videos on these guys and I'll tell you, they have really grown on me. The face on these guys is very cool and that limespots pretty nice as well. Actually just emailed Greg about some lol. Thanks for sharing.

Miguel, absolutely they rock! I hope you enjoy them, and I've been saying for a while that videos are how fish are sold because it assures the buyer that the specimens aren't an 'off group.'

Thanks TR, yes it's an Current USA Orbit with only the white lights, and only at at 50% intensity, supplemented by a small Aquaray Grobeam for shimmer. My Lufubu look best with lots of blue light, whereas the Kapampa look better with white light but not too bright.

Notes on food and troph pigment: Lufubu became too blue on spirulina flakes, but they turn more purple with kelp pellets and NLS...whereas the Kapampa are at their greenest with New Era Algae Pellets. Moliro were not at their reddest with NLS, but with Ken's Naturose Color Flakes.
