Re: Remarks on Benthochromis species

Re: Remarks on Benthochromis species

Hy everybody, I would also like to add some things... About the peer-review issue. I agree with Phillipe that a certain truth is valid no matter weather there was a review process or not but this is largely a philosophical question since a truth is true by definition but we as humans are very subjec...

Re: First pictures of Hemichromis saharae

An amazingly beautiful fish... thanks for posting!

Doesn't look like a "normal" H. letoureuxi to me.... Anybody knows if there is any genetics done on these so far?

Re: favipinnis or bathyphilus

Hey Benoit,

I think we all agree here that it is X. bathyphila! I wrote above that it is NOT X. flavipinnis for the reason of the lips and more.

Re: Revision of Astatoreochromis

Hy cichla, hy all, was this different sequence hypothetical right...? Or is there a study? I am always thinking about the same problem. Basically this reduces down to the species concept problem. Differences in genetic sequence are for sure not a indicator for being different species, considering th...

Re: What makes a Cichlid is a Cichlid?

Hy Florent, do you have any ref. for the Cichla? It's possible and I havn't seen them live yet but all the pics I have seen have a split line. As for the the other species I would suspect that it looks like one line as a consequence of the extrem compression as adaption to the high currents in their...
