I have some questions about the Cyprichromis family, or more specific about Cyprichromis microlepidotus.
How can you see the difference in sexes?
I know with C. leptosoma and the 'Jumbo's' it's quite clear.
A brightly coloured male and a somewhat bleak female
Is this the same with C.microlepidotus?
At some places the name Cyprichromis microlepidotus Malassa pops up.
As far as my knowledge goes the family is devided in the lake as written below
C. leptosoma, the whole lake minus the Burundi waters
C. leptosoma sp. 'Jumbo', the southern regions.
C. Cyprichromis microlepidotus, the northern regions.
C. pavo, the southern regions.
C. zonatus, the southern regions.
However Malassa is in the most southern part of Tanzania, almost in Zambia :S
Is my knowledge (bookwork etc.) incorrect, or what?
No matter how life brings me down, looking at my beautiful daughter makes everything aaaaaaaaaaaaaalright! :D
