Well, I definitely forgot my password to my old account on here so it was time for a new account! A lot of you guys from 6 or 7 years ago should remember me (JKohn). My two "weak spots" with fish are Pelvicachromis and Tanganikan Shell Dwellers. Got into the hobby when my then-boyfriend-now-husband got me two pairs of Pelv. Taeniatus "Moliwe" (now Pelv. Kribinsis "Moliwe") for Valentine's Day roughly 7-8 years ago and they were probably my favorite fish to date. Around that time, I saw the Pelvicachromis sp "Blue Fin" just coming on to the scene, instantly fell in love with them and have been quietly poking around to find some. We did FINALLY acquire these fish, now called the Enigmatochromis Lucanusi, thanks to Ted Judy and it looks, as of right now as they are still juveniles, that we have one male and three females (one has tail spots/clear dorsal and three have no tail spots, turquoise dorsal fins). I am really looking forward to watching these fish grow and hopefully spawn!

Nice cichlid Jamie.
You maybe the only one on the block with this cichlid.

Welcome back.

Too bad you just missed Ted Judy talk about Pelvicachromis last thursday at the MAS meeting. I am not a member because I work most thursdays but I could make this one and was glad I did. It was an amazing presentation! These are also one of my favorite fish! I was breeding them in college and trading them in to the LFS or selling(for beer money) :mrgreen:

Welcome to the forum!

Your tanks aren't too small. Your fish are too big.

Husband here- No we made it to the talk, that's when Ted brought us the Blue-Fins. Ted gives great presentations.
If you don't put a location in your for sale ad that must mean you're willing to deliver.

Oh cool we got a married couple on here! I must have saw you! I was the one that came in a little late and was standing in the straight back. It was a great talk!

Any shell dweller fry or adults available for purchase?
