 Hello  Friends...  After  a  long,  long,  long  wait  I  got  some  for  me  ...  FINALLY....   Cheering   ...  no  amount  of  emotions  through  these  smiles  can  tell  you  how  happy  I  am  ...  these  are  not  fish..  they  are  some  jewels...  
 
 I  just  received  them,  kindly  check  them  out  !!!!   They  are  Mobas,  F1,  TOP  NOTCH  quality...and  I  call  them  Zaire  "Purple"  because  they  have  a  lot  of  violet  in  them...  infact  a  lot!!!  pics  may  not  show  that...  I  will  need  to  get  my  hands  on  a  better  camera...  but  nevertheless...  here  they  go...
 
 The  bags  in  which  they  arrive..  and  I  am  just  so  ........
 
 
 
 
 In  the  bucket...  doing  acclimization
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 In  the  tank  along  with  small  altos
 
 
 
 pictures  not  very  great  with  the  camera
 
 
 
 
 one  more  in  the  tank
 
 
 
 trying  to  measure  them
 
 
 
 they  are  slightly  over  2"  --  yahoo
 
 
 
 Now  this  is  what  is  called  "zaire-Purple"  I  guess.......

 Great  fish  Vivek,
 
 Just  to  list  the  identifying  points  of  these  Blue  (rather  Purple)  Zaire  Mobas:
 
 1.  No  yellow  on  any  finnage
 2.  No  vertical  line  below  the  eye
 3.  Horizontal  line  between  the  two  eyes  (like  they're  wearing  sunglasses)
 
 
 
 How  do  you  judge  other  stuff  especially  at  that  size?
 
 Regards,
 Sid

 Sidrock,I  don't  know  much  about  mobas,but  the  identification  points  that  you  have  said  holds  true  for  any  zaires  I  believe,  not  just  mobas  but  kitumbas  and  kapampas  also.At  this  age  or  even  later  I  think  its  impossible  to  say  whether  they  are  mobas  or  other  variants  unless  the  supplier  is  confident  enough  or  unless  you  have  kept  all  the  variants  of  the  zaires.
 
 Anyways  vivek,we  would  love  to  see  better  pics  of  your  purple  mobas.

 The  stand/rack  for  my  6  footer  is  in  construction.  I  have  asked  for  3  levels  in  that  rack.   Although  my  current  6  footer  is  for  my  Silver  Aro  (and  a  Gar  that  I  am  going  to  add  soon),  the  next  6  footer  is  definitely  going  to  be  African  Cichlids  and  Frontosas/Gibberosas  are  at  the  top  of  my  list..  So,  currently  I  am  doing  all  the  necessary  research  to  ensure  I  get  the  right  fish  for  the  right  price..
