Introducing Mikula Group B

-- Beautiful fish; congrats on finally sticking to your guns and keeping some. The planned community tank sounds like a wonderful mix.
-- Any chance you'd want to sell these guys?
-- Just kidding. :lol:

For those of us who have been breeding Cyphotilapia for any time, the thought crosses all of our minds that: “one of these days, I am going to save a batch of fry and grow them out and enjoy them for myself.” Then, people start wanting what you have and the urge to sell weakens that desire to grow them out and before you know it, you have sold the grow-out group convincing yourself that you’ll save some from the next batch. Right. I’ve been there before, you never end up saving a grow-out group.

I have been blessed with a bumper crop of Mikula fry the past six months under Tau’s reign as alpha and I made up my mind that I would save some F1 Mikula fry right from the start. I am sticking to my guns and have held back a grow-out group for myself. Right now, they are in, for the most part, a non aquascaped tank. Once the snow starts to melt in the Lake Michigan Lake Effect Snow Belt, I plan to start looking for some more Arkansas Field Stone to aquascape a big tank for this group.

My plans include resealing a 125-gallon tank that is currently not in use. Once I get around to that and purchase some filters, heaters, and other ancillary equipment for it, I will put it in service for these Mikula. I want it to be a community tank with some altolamps that I have been growing out (calvus BCWP & Muzi gold head comps). I also plan on adding some leleuipi and some julies (or something else long & mean). Oh yah, some syno cats that I have been growing out.

I know that I have been saving these fry for this purpose; however, I never let it sink in until tonight: these are Mikula Group B. I get to enjoy them grow out in a tank next to their wild parents.

So, with further delay, here is Cyphotilpia gibberosa Mikula Group B (all F1):
