They went a little below market value I think... ask Rob. The GCAS is more of a cichlid crowd (as we all know) so it's kinda difficult to gauge how this goes. I'm doing my best to infiltrate the club and get more planted tanks going... shrimp kinda go hand in hand with them... although I don't see myself throwing any of my CRS in my 125 or 75 planted tanks.... just too risky. There needs to be a mouth-brooding shrimp that likes hard water and high ph.. then the GCAS'ers would be more enthusiastic haha.

More steals than deals here. $.50 a RCS, auction price. People won't pay more for $.75 either when they come over for CRS! But I look at it as a package deal. Actually, I'm done with RCS in my 75. Bring on the Dwarf Puffers!

I don't have the heart to do that! But I won't be sending any snail eating videos either.

.50? dang. hardly worth breeding them anymore. LOL. on a happy note, we just found baby CRS in our CRS only tank! They are very very cute as babies. hahaha.... seriously though, they are all colored up and awesome looking already, at like 1/3cm. LOL.

I think most of Ohio clubs are cichlid based... arent they? I mean the interest in mainly on them/in them, seemingly. Chris- do you attend the OCA Extravaganza in Strongville? We go every year. Too many mbuna for me but i like to look for apistogramma elizabethae- my favorite little cichlid. Taeniacara candidi is also on my must have list. I wish I could find those at an auction! :P

No I've actually never been.. maybe I will this year.. we'll see. I'm not a huge fan of malawians, a few are alright..but honestly they're all the "same" to me... same goes with Apistos (though, admittedly, I have very little experience with them). I'm a huge fan of Tanganyikans though.. their diversity is quite impressive.

Apistos are tough... look for a place that has naturally soft/acidic water and you'll find more apistos. I don't have a clue where that is though...

Maybe you'll be interested in some Triglachromis otostigma fry then. We had our 8 year old pair FINALLY spawn a month ago. They are a species that can "taste" with their pectoral fins. Very cool to watch them rake.
You'd like the OCA, Chris. You stay in the Holiday Inn and sit back and talk fish with people in their rooms. It's a little weird if youre new to it. People will bring their fish and open their rooms for walkers-by to come in and buy/trade. We've gotten most all of our Pelvicachromis this way. Admittedly, there are a lot of malawi fish -not exactly my favorite either- and angelfish are always popular as well as some nice discus. Sometimes you'll find other cool stuff as well. We picked up galaxy rasbora there last year (when they were rare).

It's worth going and cheap too.
