Breeder's Notes 10/20/2018
The fry for sale are closer to 1.5" and have good overall mass for their size. The blues are showing mostly on the dorsal fins. As they mature they will get much more blue. 

Breeder's Notes 11/20/2017:
The mpimbwe fry are growing out nicely. Most specimens are 1"-1.25". The fry are showing a light blue tint on the dorsal fin with clean stripes. Fry of this size should reach 2.5"-3" in about 3-4 months with feeding of quality food and a regular water change schedule.
