I don't see them much at all, but remember when they were "common/established" (i.e. regularly being imported). Unfortunately, I have a feeling a lot of the imported lines/populations from then are facing a similar fate.
#6 is pretty crazy. what was that being sold as? cristobal as well? is #2 a uyama river? Ive wanted them for quite a while.
I havent seen Rio Brancos or Rio Guarmos in a while. Dont think I ever saw more than a handful that were CB, and im sure nobody ever got F2s. Its really unfortunate, Id love to work with both of them.
just because a lot are imported doesnt mean anything for how available they are. people need to remember that when thigs are being brought in. how long will it last, and how many do we need in capable hands?
I had a pair that the female was the same exact one u have in pic 6 and they laid plenty of clutches none of them anygood,really wanted them to produce becuase like u said u dont see them at all that pair was the only pair i had ever seen also called mainland cristo.hope we can see some new imports in the near future.
That second pic was the "uyama" you sent me, they started breeding as soon as I put her together with my male, only bad eggs for a (long) while, then I switched to Repashy, soon after saw a tad wriggling in a clutch, then the male died soon after, Robb M was going to hook me up with a male but then she also died before he shipped (they lasted quite a while).
flapjax3000 (my current roommate/ landlord) picked up 2.4 guarumo. the first trio was sold soon after, but the second trio just recently switched hands and now resides with baita83 who seems to be having sucess (at least into the tadpole stage)
