It was more like involuntary gasps for air. I think
even some of the die-hard African Rift Cichl-idiots were amazed! If this
fish does become available in the states, watch out for the feeding frenzy and
high prices. Mike, any idea if it's easy or hard to breed?
BTW, excellent presentation. Folks attending the ACA
will be impressed, especially since he's upgrading some of his slides.
My only complaint was that an hour was too short of time to cover Apistos in
depth, especially considering that the Apisto world is changing so fast these
days with new fish introductions and scientific analysis in the works.
