February 2016 Breeder’s Award Program (BAP) Report

The new year brought a new entrant in our Breeder Award Program as Juan Damelines donated 4 African cichlids to the auction. His entries were rusty cichlids (Iodotropheus sprengerae), Pseudotropheus acei, Cynotilapia afra “hara”, and Pelvicachromis taeniatus “Nigerian green” (which created quite a stir and drew the highest bid!). These entries vaulted Juan to the top of the current “Breeder of the Year” standings. The other entry was electric blue acaras (Aequidens
pulcher) from BAP chairman Larry Jinks, who got on the board to defend his “Breeder of the Year” title from last year.
