Further Spreading of Vics in the US @ NEC convention
My buddy brought a breeding group of the P. chilotes Zue Is. to the North East Council convention recently (a confederation of fish clubs like FOTOS in Texas). This auction was highlighting CARES and I thought that someone who "cares" and really wants them would pick them up. It was a male heavy group with holding females.
They were put on the prereg list weeks ahead. When brought up... the auctioneer made no reference to the fact that they were CARES fish....
A fellow picked them up for the $10 opening bid!
Seems the bidder knew exactly what they were, has a male less group from years ago and has been in contact trying to get them from me....
Wish I knew who he was and what forum I know him from....
Glad you finally have a great group of year plus old fish!
I know of now 4 well established breeding groups with responsible keepers now have this fish.
