I have a group of 7 Melanochromis cyaneorhabdos, maingano cichlids, the black and blue mbuna for sale, $35

It is supposed to be 6 females and a gorgeous male, but I think one of the females might be a subdominant male after all. They are about 3-4", still pretty young

If you aren't going and have them bagged up ready on Friday around noon, I can probably pick them up to deliver to Jesse (well, meet somewhere near the beltway).

Thanks for the offer, Lane - it looks like I will definitely go on the 5th. If something comes up, though, I'll let you know and arrange for a handoff.

Jesse, I'll be in touch as we get closer to work out a meeting.

As an update, the colony safely transported to @verbal and we had an excellent time at the CCA's Big Fish Deal last weekend!

A week later I went to clean the tank and prepare it for the goldfish and I found maingano babies in there that I missed! The background is black and the gravel is black so I couldn't see them until now. So, Jesse, these definitely bred for me, lol. My buddy Lionel will be happy about this.

Thanks for the fish. They were what their tank needed(a 33 long). I had a group of 4 mainganos and their seemed like a lot of fish sulking in caves. Adding the new guys has added a lot of activity to the tank and actually seems to have reduced aggression.

That's great. I was surprised not to see babies when I took the tank down, but figured it was too small for them, maybe, and they were getting eaten, since from time to time I'd see a female holding, but lo and behold, there were babies after all and when I netted them out that Saturday morning I just missed them since they blended in with the gravel so well.

I had what I call zero true aggression among them (for Africans), just the usual chasing around, but a nice group overall. Now I'm waiting on my wild rams from Josh to pair off. I think I have fish ADD, lol
