I believe it may still be available from Ron Coleman, or at least he will be able to suggest a source for it in the US.

There's a superb article on Alcolapia in 'Cichlid Research: State of the Art', a Cichlid special from the Journal of Aquariculture and Aquatic Sciences. I have heard that they are now being produced by breeders in eastern Europe for the aquarium trade, and they have been imported into the US. I thin...

I doubt it. The riverine Haplochromines have been largely ignored in favour of the lacustrine radiations. To even attempt to map out all the different variations would involve a lot of overland driving, possibly through areas where safety may be compromised, and the next drought, flood event or drai...

The picture of the 'Valentines' looks exactly like the four fish I picked out of a shipment of Laetacara (from an Argentinian shipper) recently. I'd assumed they were 'C.' facetum, although as they are still small as yet it's possibly too early to tell for sure (at the rate they are growing it shoul...

Points of view vary with some even stating that there is no worth it conservation outside the natural habitats, and if those habitatas are lost there is no value in keeping the species found in it anymore. This I believe is radical and very much arguable. With a finite quantity of resources, diffic...
