Bob "Salty" Nuckols 1961 - 2013

The fish world lost a character August 11th, 2013. My friend Bob “Salty” Nuckols passed away at his home. Bob is survived by wife Stacy, and daughters, Ellen and Emily. Although he left way too soon, during his time with us, he left his mark! He was a personality like no other! I first met Bob in th...

Re: Greenwood and Haplochromis

One would be a fool not to acknowledge the scope of work that Greenwood took on. The shear number of fish that he was trying to make heads and tails of was incredible. By his own admissions, (as written in many of his papers) he battled with what distinctly constitutes a genus and species. He made m...

Re: ID help please

Greetings sonialy These are Astatotilapia latifasciata from the Kyoga Basin. This fish is still common in both Lake Kyoga and some of the Kyoga finger lakes. Its CARES and red list status is reflected in the fragility of the environment and not current population numbers. It's a fantastic aquarium f...

Re: Greetings from the Maritimes

Hi Matt From a fellow New Brunswicker, welcome. As I understand things with shipping, you might be better off to acquire stock from the west rather than the US. If you were to let us know what species you were looking for, Lisa might be able to at least point you in the right direction. I brought so...

Re: Muhuru=greenwoodi, red tail=Ptyochromis

Hi Chris The "purple princess" is Pseudocrenilabrus multicolor victoriae. I have no idea where the name purple princess came from. I think you could be correct on the tricolor fulu possibly being Neochromis greenwoodi. It's a beautiful fish that we need to look at closer. I'm going to have to disagr...

Re: Paralabidochromis sp "red piebald" ?'s

Hi Dustin Your fish looks fine. Paralabidochromis sp. "red fin piebald". Depending on who you talk to they may refer to this fish as Haplochromis as, like so many other haplochromines, it lacks a formal description. It's from the Kyoga basin north of Lake Victoria in Uganda. I really can't see why i...

Re: Pundamilia sp. "Blue Bar" Hippo Point ID confirmation

Hi guys

This is a sub dominant male blue bar. This particular species is almost certainly Pundamilia pundamilia with the collection point being Hippo Point Kenya. It is one of the most northerly occurring members of its genus.

Re: difference between female flameback vs Kyoga flameback?

The bottom photo is PROBABLY Xystichromis sp. "Kyoga flameback" the top is likely the Kisumu Xystichromis sp. "flameback" just based on eye size. As Chris stated, they are not easy to tell apart.

Re: Some pictures of my fish :) (load warning!)

Astatotilapia latifasciata is native to the Kyoga Drainage System. This is a major outflowing of the Nile from Lake Victoria. It is quite rare in the main body of water (Lake Kyoga) but still found in healthy numbers in some of the smaller finger lakes such as Nawampassa and Gigati.

Re: Help with id

I side with Pundamilia sp. "blue bar" as well. Interestingly this fish will likely be shown to be Pundamilia pundamila. It s one of the most northerly occurring Pundamilia species from Hippo Point in Kenya.

Re: Line Bred vs. Hybrid

Excellent conversation! In my opinion, hybrids have no place in a society that is taking an active role in cichlid conservation and habitat security and certainly not in my fishroom. I think the linebred/selective breeding question is interesting. Again. my opinion is to not purposely alter the phys...

Newest fellow of the ACA

I wanted to congratulate our own Juan Miguel honored this weekend in Atlanta at the annual American Cichlid Association convention, on being named "Fellow of the ACA". The great honor could not have been bestowed on a better recipient.
Congratulations Juan!
