Don't think you guys have this shelldweller but thought I'd share some pictures with you anyways. Hope you like them.

A female guarding her eggs. This is the first time that I've seen their eggs. She chose to lay them in a gold mouth turbo but I think you can see them.

Here is the same female with the male keeping guard over her.

Here is another female in the tank with her fry. This is the first time that I've had spawns at the same time.

Hopefully someday they will be allowed on your import list. They are really a neat shell dweller. Personality is similar to the ocellatus but their fins are very ornate.

Kippy -

That sounds great!

You can email them to me (or post them here - or in the other thread above SCP gallery update).

OK,

Here they are. Ready?

I think these fry are about 12 weeks old.

This is one of the female (lower right) trying to get the male to spawn with her. This is the breeding dress. Notice the dark body with white area in the belly region. Also notice that her pectorial fins are very dark.

Not as good, but you can really see the breeding dress on this female.

And finally. My very first spawn from them.
