Identification Assistance Requested

Post by Joe Middleton » Thu Dec 22, 2005 10:25 pm

In the Central Americans' forum, someone posted a photo of a fish that I can not readily verify. Middle Africa's great cichlid diversity is largely alien to me. Any assistance in identifying this fish would be greatly appreciated. Please visit this post:

Thankyou for moving the post Joe.

The fish has been identified as Pelmatochromis Nigrofasciatus.

Cheers again

Not to toot my own horn, but TOOT TOOT!

I have a thread in this forum with a photo of my pair of Pelmatochromis nigrofasciatus sitting on eggs. I looked at the photos you had in the other thread, I only saw a male , or males. Females tend to be much smaller and stockier in appearance. Very mild mannered species, my 12cm male doesn't even chase the 3cm swordtail fry in there.
