Attention!!
 
Well there really isn't a forum for general discussion and this is about cichlids so I am posting it here.

My business was pretty much ruined by my ex. Now she said everything died, I am starting to have my doubts. She said something about taking the fish to petshops. I think she told me everything died so I wouldn't try to get any of my stuff. Who knows maybe all the fish did die. I can't say for sure. I do believe that some of them may have died because she didn't want the hassle so she probably did shut the power off and let everything die.

I am posting this so that anyone who buys Africans from upstate NY let me know. Especially if someone is selling species such as Pundamillia sp Red Flanks(extremely rare Victorian), Albino Yellow Labs, F1 Freddies and so on. I know Red Flanks are rare so I would appreciate it if someone hears anything about these being for sale to let me know. I put a substantial amount of time and money into this setup and I would hate to see these fish(if they aren't dead) being sold in poor condition because she knows very little about their care and maintenance.

I will rebuild. I might have lost my amazing fish but I will not lose my love for the hobby and the benefits of maintaining endangered species.

Thanks,

Jeff

I'm very sorry to hear your story. It's a cruel thing to do, not just to you and to the fish, but to the world of fish in general as your Victorians are rare fish that are facing extinction in the wild.

I encourage anyone who shops in LFS's in his area to research the fish he mentioned so that you can identify them at the store, even if you aren't interested in these particular fish yourself.

I live in Upstate NY and the only places I know are in Rochester. Petco has some and a LFS called Pet World " Aqua Shoppe" specializes in fish.
