    Joanjohnsonae @ 5cm unsexed

    Joanjohnsonae juveniles are SOLD and going to Sydney next week. Its a shame as there aren't many around nowadays and I had hoped somebody local would buy them and get them breeding Anyway, I have more fry coming through, so if anyone local is keen, shoot me a PM

  6. Sorry guys, I no longer keep any of the Protomelas spilonotus "Tanzania", something had to go a while back and I elected to move them on and concentrate on my Otopharynx lithobates

    Thanks Michael For anybody who can't read the text in the original post, I have copied it below : Joanjohnsonae ~ These are a less common Malawi mbuna recently reclassified from Melanochromis to Labidochromis. They grow to around the same size as electric yellows and have similar requirements. Pictures show juvenile/female colouration and a male that has finished turning blue. I have 20 available at around 5cm, sold unsexed for 10 for $120.00 or the 20 for $200.00. Pickup from Palm Beach on the Gold Coast or will consider shipping airport to airport if buying the 20.

    yep, I tried the QLDAFv2 theme and the first post is dark on dark, all others are white on dark. When I switch back to QLDAF white-blue, all posts are dark on white and easily readable for me

    Electric Yellow Legal Import?

    Well, I have just seen a video of some 8 - 9cm imported electric yellows currently in a tank in Melbourne. To be honest, I found them very disappointing and there is no way I will be obtaining any to use as breeding stock, in my humble opinion my own strain are far better quality, both in colouration and body shape. I do not know where the ones in the video were imported from, but I am assuming Asia. My understanding is that electric yellows are not collected wild from the lake and exported nowadays. Presumably importers therefore will have the option of importing quality German stock or cheap stock from Asia, much like with Cyrtocara moori (aka blue dolphins) which have been an allowable import for many years. In my personal experience the German blue dolphins are far better quality than the cheap Asian ones and I assume this will also be the case with electric yellows. So I'm expecting there may be the odd small import of the quality German lines which will sell at a premium, probably mainly to serious breeders. But I expect the bulk of imports will be cheap Asian stock by major wholesalers which while admittedly bringing some new blood into the country, I do not expect to add any appreciable quality to current stocks.
