Correct, that is an opinion, comments is intended for that. We need some publication making the formal proposal to justify the movement
Has there been a publication as I now see many undescribed species listed under Chindongo in the CRC profile?

Re: Chindongo sp. 'elongatus thumbi'?

Thank you Philippe.

So my next question is why CRC show only the described species?

Chindongo sp. 'elongatus thumbi'?

I was reading the profile of Metriaclima flavicauda and found this. "The species at Thumbi West Island that could be confused (at the time of Ribbink et al.'s investigations) with M. flavicauda is scientifically undescribed and currently referred to as Chindongo sp. 'elongatus thumbi' (Konings, 2007...

Re: New Labeotropheus sp

The paper is paywalled, but I would assume it is L. fuelleborni as males at the locations stated are similar.

Re: help identifying these black spots

It is often referred to as spirulina spots, supposedly due to too much spirulina in the diet, but from my experiences with mbuna, it is stress related. Holding females sometimes show them, even though their food intake is greatly reduced.

Labeotropheus simoneae

As I understood it in Pauers paper from 2016 Labeotropheus simoneae and L. chlorosiglos were found only only at Katale, but the profile on CRC shows photos of a male and female Labeotropheus simoneae from Manda.

Is this correct?

Re: Wild Ps. saulosi imported?

Many people have contributed to the Stuart Grant Conservation Fund to try to help the survival of this species in it's natural habitat. I was fortunate enough to be part of the 2014 and 2015 release, but whether these were the released captive bred or truly wild stock is irrelevant. Both the exporte...

Wild Ps. saulosi imported?

Everyone throughout the hobby knows that this species is critically endangered and the efforts taken to try and prevent them from becoming extinct in the wild. But it appears that for some a little more money in their pocket is more important than the survival of a species. I have been told that Cic...

Re: Trying to find proper names

Metriaclima yellow chin Eccles Reef is Metriaclima pyrsonotos from Chimwalani Reef.

I had fish that came in as Petrotilapia sp. chimwalani. They were actually Petrotilapia genalutea.
But they could be a number of species.
Do you have pics?

Re: New to site - intro and a general question

It's the same here in the UK. Some of the shops don't have a clue what they have in stock, let alone what they should look like. Forums and facebook pages are full of "Can you ID my fish?" The poor quality on sale in shops and from people who keep fry from any mating, regardless of if they are the s...

Find out who the hosting company are and contact them.

I had the same issue a while back with no response from the site using my pic, but once GoDaddy had the details the pic was taken down.

The blue lighting makes it hard to tell, but the third looks like an Aulonocara and the fourth Labidochromis caeruleus.
