Fantastic !!! What a brilliant combination of hobbies you have !!!! There are some fantastic West African fish, I wish I had a bigger fish house so that I could keep some (I did have a couple of geographical varients of P. taeniatius, 'Nigeria green' and 'Nigeria red', several years ago).

Not sure it's a 'meeki' Esben, more like a 'maculipinnis' to me.

HITH / LLE

How common are these ailments in wild fishes (Hole in the Head / Lateral line erosion) ? Does it affect the same species in the wild as it does in captivity ? If so, has any info been gathered as to water conditions/time of year/food availability etc of affected fish ? I'm trying to find some cause/...

The 'manaconda' is a hybrid between a managuense and a red terror. To each his own........!

How about A. korneliae ? Pics in books make them seem a little pale, but the ones I used to have were a rich purple with the orange/red shoulder. Sorry no pics, it's a few years ago before I had digital :) .

Hi Chris. I don't know about the south of England, but Ian at 'Oddball Express' (Coalville) is placing an order with Jeff Rapps in the next couple of weeks. Give him a call (07989 309752), he may be bringing some pure citrinellum in.

The black marks in the dorsal fins of the 'mixteco' (all 3 types) denotes a female. My gold male is 5.5" TL at the moment and is probably around 18 months old, female around 4.5". The blues I have are around 1" less than this, but I got them as young adults. The greens were slower growers but the ad...

The parents I have are very good with the fry, after removing the female (for her safety) the male showed no aggression at all to the fry even when they were 3/4". For continued rearing I tend to remove the parents instead of the fry, I've found the fry are very skittish and hard to catch. I use a s...

Yes Gwendly, it is interesting ! There are some very interesting threads on Mojo's site about the variations in both Vieja and Herichthys species. I'm sure as more and more fish are collected from different locations the subtle differences within 'species' will throw out more questions than answers....

Here's a couple of pics of my Aureus 'blue'. They were from Jeff Rapps last year. They have just been placed in this new tank so colours not settled, also they are not in 'brood care' patterns like the one in the pic from the breeder. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v363/Grummie2/fish2jul05014.jpg...

I've found the 'blues' to be the most aggressive of the 3, I have them in a 4'x2'x15" tank with a pair of 'Rotkeil' sevs and an old pair of albino kribs (I know it's a weird combo), they all ignore each other. The 'greens' and 'golds' have been raised from juvenile in a group of 6 each. They all got...

Here are pics of the 3 varieties as adults. I think it would be difficult to tell them apart at the size you have them, but give them time and it will be easy.

Thorichthys sp. 'Mixteco Gold'

Hi, I have a breeding pair of these beautiful fish, and have had the chance to raise many fry. Although I have the catchment location for the 'Blue' and 'Green' (which I also have pairs of) I can't seem to find the catchment area for the 'Golds'. I was wondering if this info is known and could be ma...

At what point does a geographical varient become a separate species ? For vombergae to be valid it must have been isolated, as there are no other endemic cichlids in Dom Rep, then haitiensis (or its ancestor rather) must have been the original cichlid from which vomergae came. Do we have any taxanom...
