Hi TMX57

you are right, it is a "thick skin". Ishmaelis are not so colorful. They have more darker colors.
It was not easy to get this specie. Everywhere I asked for I got the answer, they are to old and dont breed any more. At least I got the last ones from the university Leiden. And they also told me that they were to old to breed. So it seemed as those would be the last in Eurpoe.
I put them alone in a tank and fed them with mussels and artemeia and one day three of them had fry. And these fry are the start of all ishmaelis we have here now.
If you keep ishmaelis together with other species you will not have success. They begin to become smaler and smaler and one day they die.
They react on each other fish, even small ones.

I've always thought that looked like a thickskin. I've just never seen an acurate picture of an ishmaile to compare. That is a cool story about how you made the ishmaile population rebound.

OK folks we need to know what everyone want's so they can breed them and have them ready for us. If you want to long you might not be able to get what you want.

Jim,

The only species I personally want is Lithochromis Rufus...but I can wait for fry from someone else. I'm sure that ISeeFish wants them too.

I'm willing to breed a specific species that no one else wants just to have some in our Country.

After about one more week I'll move the list to it's own thread. This will make it easy for our friends in Europe to know what we want.

Tr6 your added on the list.

Jim,

I would be very interested in some sp.44's from Europe if they have any. Probably my favorite Victorian, would love to jazz up the bloodlines of the one's that ISeeFish and I have.

glad to see some many people interested in the fish.

one question for the IGV guys, are you not willing to share any of the red list or nearly extinct fish?

just wondering if you intended to send us the 'commercial' type fish only. if so i may have to change my list to include a red list fish.

thats what i wanted at first but the degeni were not available.

thanks for your guys time and help.

Hi pantera,

we don´t keep the 44, because there are to many hybrids arround so that we are not sure to keep a clean strain.

hi dre-day,

if you want you can have a lot of P.degeni. Our problem is: we got them from the university of Leiden. and all kept them alone in a tank. The fry of them grew up and became more colorful than their parents. So we contacted Ole Seehausen and showed him the pics of them. And he told us, that they were hybrids.
Now we wrote back to the Leiden university to Frans Witte, to tell him about our experiences with this specie. But until now we got no answer. And before we don´t exactly know if it is a good strain, the degenis are not availalbe. I hope you accept this. But if you want, you can have them, but without a guarantee to be a good strain. I have a lot of them. They breed and breed.
