i want to change my tank over from mbuna to a small group of calvus.

reply and/or pm me pls if you know where some are available.

Species Profiles -- Cichlid-Forum

ideally id like a pair of white chaitaka, pair of yellow calvus, and a pair of black inkfin calvus.

im even willing to grow out a group of fry, im aware of their slow growth rates.

you dont want young fry. calvus/compressiceps are the slowest growing fish i own. they are like the tanganyikan rock cod.... a nice one the size of your palm is about 6-10 years old. i have had one i obtained a yellow at 2 inches and about a year and a half after he is pushing 3. they grow relativity fast till there an inch long then there growth really slows down.

i got some just under an inch at 7 dollars each that i imported... Ioans price is hard to beat. i would suggest getting some off him!
