Like V. heterospila, when I look at V. ufermanni; on a morphological sense they remind me more with bocourti and pearsei, especially when in spawning dress..?

Thanks, Florent, for that video link.

I cannot help but make an observation: Has every North American and Central American cichlid species that has been collected and maintained in captivity been spawned? If not, then which species have not been spawned in captivity?

@ Mark

The citrinellum comlex is growing rapidly. Good chanses a few of them have not been bred yet. For lack of time, that is :lol:

One that comes to mind is P. omonti. Has anyone ever spawned this species?
