Re: A Calabaricus
They were all wild caught fish from
various locations around Monrovia and there were liberiense-like
fish, Ep. annulatus and Callopanchax (then Roloffia) monroviae
present in every shipment.
These wild imports are still being received by one
UK wholesaler. We are fortunate to have a finger on the pulse & can
intercept them on arrival. Most are caught in unknown collecting areas & can
arrive mixed in the bag to be sorted. As an example, we recently found a yellow
Ps.annulatus which is like nothing seen in any photo I have seen. See http://www.bka.freeuk.com/killinews5.htm for
I believe this importer will bring in many more wild killies
which we are concentrating on distributing. The AKA conservation groups are most
encouraging. We have sent a few eggs to the US & would like to send more
this summer. How are the Epiplatys fasciolatus Conakry doing?
We have a new import of a cognatum form with a yellow anal fin
shipped from Kinshasa. These are now settled in & breeding. Some 21 fry are
being raised at a safe house in case of disaster. I'm looking forward to putting
these in the elegans group over there.
