Check the Greenwater site. There is another club having an auction this Sunday at the same place. Might get lucky. Place an ad on their site too. That's where I sold my pairs off!

I am no Geo specialist,  so I will give basis "Cichlid 101" advice.  Add a few more girls.  Red humps are not too hard to come by.  I wish this post would've come up two weeks earlier.  I just auctioned off 5 of em.

Hey, a while back I picked up some Geo juvys,(steindachneri Red Humps) they have since than spawned for me numerous times, after a few days or so of holding I would remove the holding female and place her in her own 10 gallon tank, and let her care for her fry in there to avoid the harrasment from the male.  I had the Geo's housed in a 30 gallon, but I went and bought them there own 75...and placed a school of  corys, a few britslenose plecos.. and the male and female geo.  The tanks loaded with plants and driftwood. has sand for substrate.  So just last week I put the female in with the male again in the 75.....man has he torn her up......thought with all the wood and caves she would have enough room and cover to avoid some of his aggression....but he keeps getting to her..I also at the swap yesterday found some beautifullll Geophagus  iporangensis, 4 of them to be exact...all around 2 1/2 inches, largest being 3 inches..thought my male might spread the aggression around with the new tankmates.....nothing...he follows my female redhump around the tank relentlessly all day taking shots here and there.........and ideas of what to do...or is it time to seperate for good????
