Just thought I would share some pics of my new fatties. Got them for quite a deal, plus picked up a 55 gallon hex from the guy for $30. They both are on a minimum of a 1 week fast. I am going to try to find a mate for the Fuelleborni, and breed it, and sell or trade the Bumblebee.

Yep, definitely overfed for who knows how long. Here is the Crabro again

tis a female which seems to be shocking to many Malawi people, since I guess the males barely get this big. Just in case there is any doubt though, and for those without venting experience, this is as clear as a female gets! little o Giant O

My wife isn't from this country either....her mind set is that fish should be eaten, not swimming around in tanks. Only Arowana's are safe where she comes from.....Our beloved Vics would be pan fried and served with chili sauce?

Hmm, home of the Arowana, Thailand? My wife is Japanese. Definately a fish eating paradise, but it didn't take her long to understand cichlids are a bit smarter and cuter than the average fish. She still Jokes though, even when they die "Time to eat?" I laugh but then think, man if I said that about her bunny that died last year she would have filed for divorce!

Yep, she's Thai alright. Lots of homes have them as good luck (Arowanas).

She's not an animal lover and sometimes I think who is actually lower on the food chain, myself or our Maltese (Valentine's Day Present) that back fired...although she's the one that just "had" to have one....but that dog as a pup tore the house up.....that's why we both slept in the garage 9 yrs ago......LOL

Thanks, The sad truth is the Fulli died shortly after, I suspect the diet may have just been too much, but also it was just soooooo fat, and must have had numbered days. I gave it a shot at a better life so I don't feel too bad. I sold the crabro because it was a handful.

That fulli was very cool, It at least had it's moment in the sun here as the fattest fulli ever ;) Seriously it felt like butter when I held it!!!

There is no L. fuelleborni I am aware of found in the wild with a bright orange dorsal. I might be wrong, but that color dorsal is found on the L. trewavasae "West Thumbi Island" and L. trewavasae at a few other collection points in the south of the lake. Yet, the tall body profile is more like the L. fuelleborni, not the cylindrical, torpedo L. trewavasae body shape.

I can't remember the CP off the top of my head, but i found other L. fuelleborni that looked nearly identical with a listed CP.. This came from Lundblads shop here in Portland for what it's worth. The guy even gave me the receipt. The more I look at the pics the more I wish I still had this butter ball :cry: Next time I am running my windows system I will check the bookmarks cause I am pretty sure I saved some of the info I found.

I agree, that fish is everywhere.
I actually have two Marmalade L. trewavasae males sold to me as Thumbi Island West, but the body form is between the one shown at the M.K. Oliver link and jumbo above. I went nuts looking for more wild caught.
There were some bright orange dorsal L. trewavasae Thumbi Island West wild caught brought in a couple years ago with the standard black bar blue morph males. They were slender like expected, even the males (which tend to be a bit stocky-er). I will try to get a bunch of fry to grow out and breed with my males.
