I have a pretty healthy (and easy breeding) group of Fp. gardneri N'Sukka,
and I know of at least 2 other club members that have fish from the same
strain. I could probably send you some juvies come spring, and I'll ask if
anyone else would be willing to send as well. Since we (GCKA) just completed
our semi-annual species inventory, I should be able to look at our records
and see if anyone has any other gardneri, too.
Also, I have an aquarium strain that is likely (based on what was in the
former owner's tanks at the time and the appearance of the fish) and
Akure-N'Sukka cross that has proven fertile into the F3, although no where
near as fertile as the N'Sukka. I keep them on hand for use in classroom
tanks at my daughter's school.
Let me know if I can help.
