Description: I have 17x SP44 fry for £25

They are around 2cm so would need to be grown on before introducing to adult fish. They are 12 weeks old.

I am happy to grown them on but if someone wants to buy them at this size to save some money then let me know.

Cash and collection only from East Grinstead, RH19 1TB. I have fish bags etc.

Approx 17x fry £3 each or £25 for 17



Please research fish before purchase, they require specific community and set ups.
They are aggressive.
This is a description from the net about this fish:

I should begin by saying that this fish has been called by several names, including Haplochromis sp.44, Haplochromis sp. "Thick Skin," Haplochromis obliquidens, and Astatotilapia sp. "Red Tail." Haplochromis obliquidens is positively incorrect. Of the others, I am not sure which is most correct, but have chosen to refer to them as Haplochromis sp. 44 "Red Tail."

Male Hap. sp.44Haplochromis sp. 44 “Red Tail” is found on the north and east coastlines of Lake Victoria and inhabits the shallow water near the shore. They are aggressive fish and should be kept in aquariums no smaller than 75-gallons. “Red Tails” are extremely colorful, hardy, and prolific spawners, which has made them the most popular Victorian cichlid in the hobby, at least in North America.

"Red Tails" display a whole spectrum of colors, unrivaled by any other species, but what’s most interesting to me about these colors is that they are continually changing. This is very difficult to explain, but I will try my best. As cichlids mature, their colors slowly come develop and grow more intense. In my experience with raising and breeding “Red Tails”, I’ve discovered that males will color up at a very young age: less than 1-inch. But this color is continually changing. (Note: I’ve kept this fish for several generations and consistently fed them all the same flake food.) What I’ve noticed is that their color is very mood-dependent. Secondly, the intensity of their various colors seem to change as they mature, with the blue and black being more intense for the first couple of years and the red and oranges being more dominant later in life. Their color is far from static, but always present.
