Re: [Killietalk] Kayuni
The fish that Brian Watters and I have been referring to, assuming we
are the prominent US breeders to whom you are referring, even though
Brian lives in Canada, are from a 2007 collection. Speaking for myself,
the answer to your question is yes, I have been successful with them.
However, they were collected only this year and I have only recently
hatched the first batches of fry. Does it surprise you that they haven't
appeared "on the market" yet? As I've stated, I intend, assuming I get
suitable numbers of pairs, to take some of these fish to the convention,
in order to support the host club. I don't apologize for choosing that
method of distribution, despite some of the comments that have been
made. The fish include N. kafuensis Kayuni ZAM 07-1, a new collection of
N. sp. Caprivi and one or more locations of both N. symoensi and N.
What 05-2 collection are you referring to? What species?
Accusing either Brian or I of not distributing fish to breeders is
absolute nonsense. A good number of the Nothos in the hobby have come
from our collections.
I don't intend to waste any more breath on defending our actions. There
is nothing to defend.
Oh, and how are you doing with the N. jubbi I sent you, Nick?
