Hi Nevin,
Just wanted to let you know that the fish arrived on time and in good shape.  They even had lunch with their new tankmates just moments after I turned them loose into their new digs.  Thanks again for the extra effort to personalize a transaction across three time zones.  Also, thanks for the free albino, he's great.

Touchdown ........... FANS ROAR!!!!! My fish arrived this morning at a little after 10:00 am. (must have came here first!).  They were in great condition and are swimming around as I am writing this.  Thanks so much for your efforts, your company's attitude will insure your success, my business and my recommendations.  Please bill my card for the extra peacock that was sent.  Again, thanks for being a stand-up company and best wishes ..........

Hello to all, First off, keep up the good work on the web pages, very nice site.
I would like to purchase African Cichlids of the Mbuna species, as you have posted. My question is can they be sexed, as you know this species works well with a ratio of 4 to 5 females to one male.
If they can what, size would the fish be and is there any difference in price. Interested in the Cobalt Blue, Johanni, Kenyi
Thank You and I look forward to your response

Reply. Hello John. Click here to see the list of Mbuna species that we sell now. We usually have the Cobalts, Johanni, and Kenyi available in our facility. These fish are about 1.5" to 2" long as shown on our list.

We will be happy to try to determine the gender of the fish you order, and send you as many males and as many females as you want.

Usually we can easily pick out males. The problem is the females, because immature males can look like females, until they grow to be quite large.

If you request 5 females one of two of them may turn out to be males. Click here to read a story about setting up a large aquarium with Mbuna species. In that story you'll notice that I removed several of the larger more aggressive fish. Those fish were mostly males. Many hobbyists have no interest in breeding fish, and these brightly colored males are ideal fish for them.

Most people who breed Mbunas want more females. The solution is to buy more fish and then remove the extra males. Long ago my brother and I were breeding huge numbers of Mbunas. We would raise up a group of 30 to 50 of a species and keep 3 males and all the females. Our breeding colonies would have the 3 males and 15 to 25 females.

The three males would quarrel with each other, and this would reduce the pressure on the females. Keeping three males also ensured that we would always have a male, even if one or two of them were injured or jumped out of the aquarium. If you are a casual breeder one male and several females would make a nice group, or you might like to have 2 males and several females.

If you decided to order Mbunas from us, be sure to add a Special Request to your order. There are five ways to order from us now. Click here to see the list of all five ways. Click here for more information about making a Special Request.

Similarly, you should include a comment on your order, if you send it by email, fax, or regular mail. Click here to see an example of such an order with a Special Request for 2 males Platies and four females at the bottom of the document.

Thank you for your compliments.
