I'm working on switching from breeding daffodill brichardi to neolamp' brevis because I have limited tank space. What can you all tell me about them? What are their growth rates? Where can I purchase 4-6 of them on-line for less than $90 including shipping?

Find a local aquarium society and save BIG!!! Most hobbyist do get spawns and sell or trade the offspring very inexpensively. My multi's were $3.00 a piece and I couldn't be happier with them. Good Luck!

if your breeding them you want certified g1's or wilds dont you? Its possible but not easy geting that kind of fish from the clubs. Dan has a link to a great place in the states that specs in cichlids.

I don't know about everyone Kenny but I personally don't see why anyone would necessarily insist on having wilds or f-1's to breed. As long as the line is pure and genetically strong why would it matter?

Actually members in our aquarium club do take part in orders to import wild caught fish. Also Club people often have the resources and contacts to obtain species that are uncommon in retail. That could depend on the club of course, how large and active they are.

My local lfs was selling "Brevis" that were actually "Multi's" for $30 a piece. Another local place had them for $16 a piece. Cincinnati does have a large group of active hobbyist/breeders. Some do sell for a living, others as a second income then still others just trying to spread the enjoyment with low priced or free fish. It's your money. Enjoy!

I bought a pair of sunspot brevis for $15 athttp://neptuneaquatics.com. They had them on sale because they had a lot of pairs. I haven't noticed the digging I've read about because I put them in one of my cycled tanks w/a gravel substrate until I get their tank cycled.

if you cannot find them locally (if you're an ACA member, surely they're listed in the Trading Post), these guys usually carry them.

I mentioned it in another thread, but in case it gets missed, Armke's is under new ownership. The new site is http://www.davesfish.com It promises to be better than ever!
