Try to learn the scientific name for your Jack Dempsey, which is Rocio octofasciata.

Re: Lamprologus meleagris and stappersi Difference?

Hi Dan. All the photos of live specimens in the species profile for L. stappersi are in fact L. meleagris.

Lamprologus meleagris and stappersi Difference?

Has anyone noticed that the photo of the preserved specimen of L. stappersi appears to have a much longer/larger ventral fin length/size than does L. meleagris? Both images appear on this site.

Re: Ornatum or Gephyrum

I just received a copy of the book, Guia De Peces Para Aguas Continentales, by 9 different authors, originally published in 2015, and it has a write up and color photo of an adult M. ornatus on page 333. The spangling on the body almost appears to be arranged in a more horizontal row-like fashion, p...

Re: ID this severum!

The specimens in your photos are challenging as they do not have an ideal appearance for any of the species mentioned on this site. Do you have any background information on them? Where they came from, what generation are they from their wild ancestors, etc?

Re: ID this severum!

Hi Myster619

Have you looked at the species section of Cichldae.com yet under the genus Heros?

If not, here it is: http://www.cichlidae.com/genus.php?id=90

Re: ID this severum!

The correct way to ask the question is: What Heros species is this?

Saying it is the family of severum is incorrect. The word severum is not a family name. It is a species name only.

Re: New, and Interesting Undescribed Geophagoid?

Indeed, I found it quite out of the ordinary in terms of what we know about the morphology/color pattern combinations of this group.

Re: New, and Interesting Undescribed Geophagoid?

My apologies for inadvertently teasing anyone about this. I was really hoping it would post to this thread. If anyone reaches Nathan Lujan's Facebook site and finds it, I would love to get your opinions on it, especially from Mr. Morgenstern.

Re: New, and Interesting Undescribed Geophagoid?

I wonder why I can access it, but nobody else can? If that is the case, and if anyone wants to see a very interesting undescribed species, they'll need to go to Dr. Lujan's Facebook page and scroll down a bit to find it.
