Re: Yssichromis sp. "blue tipped"

Thanks, MNJason has them, but doesn't have enough to share yet and I think he's the only one that has them. Greg never mentioned having them. I would really like to figure out who to order fish from out of the country... people don't seem to want to share connections either. :)

Thanks tho.

Yssichromis sp. "blue tipped"

Hi. Does anyone have this species, Yssichromis sp. "Blue Tipped"? I am trying to locate someone that has them so that I may purchase some in the hopefully near future, but I'm quite flexible, if I can be put on a waiting list.

Thanks so much for any info.

Re: Just one more in a never ending list of QUESTIONS!!!

Ok, that is what mine look like. They are mostly a light orange color with black or very dark blue speckles. I'm looking forward to seeing how they grow. They do come from CARES registered parents so I'm confident they are pure... :)

Thanks for all the information!

Xystichomis sp. 'Kyoga Flameback'

I have a question (of course) about the X. sp. 'Kyoga Flameback' This question is in regard to the color of the pelvic fins. Do both male and female have the black pelvic fins? For instance, if I had five of the flamebacks and I was unsure of the sexes, would the pelvic fins be of any help determini...

Just one more in a never ending list of QUESTIONS!!!

Hi. Ok, I have received some fry that are Paralabidochromis sp. "red fin piebald." Now, as fry they appear to be orange and flecked. When I googled them I found a photo taken by Kevin Bauman (whom I believe to be an expert) on this species and his photo shows a male fish that looks like very much li...

New Question - Furu vs Fulu

Since I am new to Victorians, and cichlids, well, fish in general to be honest. I have had Fulus, and I have also read about fish referred to as Furu. Is someone willing to explain the difference of these two words to me, in layman's terms please?

Re: 1: looking back; why (not) convict cichlids?

I have convicts! I love them. They have so much personality. I love how they care for the fry!!! I would like to know what you decided to do. I do like the fact that they are a very hardy cichlid. I have them in with my Oscars (to make the oscars behave) I also have one breeding pair as well in a se...

Humphrey Greenwood

Hi. This was discussed briefly somewhere and I cannot remember where, but I have read that all of the genus proposed by Humphrey Greenwood are being re-evaluated. I'm wondering why this is? He seems to have made a large contribution and it strikes me odd that they would go thru all of his work again...

Re: Our mostly all-male Mostly Malawi Tank

What is the species that is mostly orange with the black or dark face! It is a lovely tank, btw. I'm really intrigued by that one fish!
