Lee has my last 3. I was hoping he would get a pair and start breeding them?

David A is the only other Damasi keeper - he has kept them for many years but i believe he has only 2 pairs now.

They do not appear in the shops ever!!!!!

Maybe someone in europe is breeding them?????

I'm keeping this fish for 2 years now with success and different people now have them in France and Germany ,a very nice fish very shy so difficult to take pics of the adults.The fry come in front of the tank begging for food.

Nice hachge. I believe Mogens Juhl in Denmark still keeps and breeds a strain that he brought back from Uganda in 1999, as well.
