A question about textilis

Post by sic_4_vics » Sat Jan 27, 2007 7:36 pm

hi all.

I have opportunity to buy some labidochromis exasperatus. I just would like to know if this is a name change from Labidochromis Textilis as the textilis is what I want but i thought i read some where that they were also known as exasperatus. any help would be appreciated.

Yes, it's the same fish. They were also called Melanochromis exasperatus for a short time.

that sounds about right.

I also remember that name: melanochromis exasperatus as well. But when i was thinking of a fish by that name, i was actually picturing a melanochromis joanjohnsonae. i think i may have just confused myself...lol

Thank you for the response and i look forward to the chance of getting these as ive been looking for them a little while now. :D
