I had also sold off my original breeders several years ago after getting my originals from Tom. You probably got them on a group order from someone in the GCCA if I remember correctly, and those would have came from Old World. These I have now were purchased from Shaun in Caro about a year ago so I've got fry from your breeders! ;-) Small world. And fantastic to see that they are still breeding true. I've got a female holding now.

I haven't heard anything about him for a couple years. When he had the Hap sp "tomato" for sale he claimed that he was unsure of the identification and it was "under investigation" or something like that. I believe that he was from somewhere in south western Michigan. He actually had the Lithochromis rufus and the blue rock kribensis many years ago.
