An inquiry on another website and a chance discovery at one of my LFS have got me wondering: what ever happened to the wonderful Dwarf Flag Cichlid (Laetacara curviceps
When I first began keeping fish (during the late Middle ages!
), these beautiful little jewels were often seen. (They were assigned to the genus Aequidens
in those days.) Now I hardly ever see or hear of them at all. Even on AquaBid I never see them offered for sale. I tried a search on this board and came up with nothing either. (I searched for 'Flag' and for 'curviceps'.) A Google search turned up a little info about them, but most of it was quite dated.
Does anyone know what happened to cause Dwarf Flag Cichlids to become so rare in the hobby?
Thanks for all replies.
