Default Looking for Moshi juveniles !

Hey I'm looking to see if anyone here might have any young Moshi for sale. If you do please let me know the size and price. I would prefer they be young as they would be going into my 210 with fifteen Red Bulu around 3 1/2" to 4". If you have experience I'm also wondering if they are very aggressive , I am hoping F1 might make them less agro !

Lee

My Moshi are very peaceful when compared to other Petros.

Dang, so you only have 2 or 3 total?

Questions

What size tank were they in?
What other tank mates did they have?
What food were you feeding them?
How long did it take for the one male to cause this damage?

This is what always drives people away from them I believe.

My colony has not shown any aggression..just make sure you have atleast 10 or more & an adequate tank size.

Should have Moshi in soon, just waiting on Africa to calm down for new import.

This is what I like to hear. I can remember from the time I started looking into Petrochromis, all I heard was that they are nasty and mean and stone cold killers.
I've had my Trews for over a year now and haven't had any issues.

So it all boils down to environment and colony size. JUST like Tropheus.

You can have a hyper dominant male Tropheus that will do the same thing if stuffed into a comparatively small tank for the low numbers that he's in and the same thing will happen.

I've also said that Petros potentially do more damage because of the amount of teeth they have and their orientation when compared to Tropheus.

I love the Trews and I'm ready for another Variant or two!

So taking these factors into account and being prepared to setup the right tank and environment for them can be the difference between success and failure.

What do your Moshis usually run Greg? And can you get the Really Yellow ones or typically come in yellow/brown looking?

Moshi are available in the UK for pretty reasonable prices. We are lucky in that respect.
