Picked up a cool Paratilapia

Yes, dividers would have been safer, they seemed copacetic at first, and I tried over stocking, and though the dominant one never bothered other species, it's brothers and/or sisters quickly disappeared.

Very cool. There's always poret foam tank dividers for injury free grow out.

I received a group from Jose a little over a year ago, the dominant one killed all others before they reached 3".
Here's the lone survivor.

Provided I don't kill them (always a good possibility), it will be at least two years to them to mature to breeding size. I'll try to track down the video of the fish from Jose Hernandez, the guy who bred them in San Antonio.

At FOTAS, over the weekend, I picked up some F1 Paratilapia sp. "Andapo". This is a large spot bleekeri type, but the males have a bright yellow edge to the dorsal. Very striking fish. Mine are only 1.5", but I am looking forward to growing these out. It's a project, though, at probably three years to get them up to a foot.
