pseudotropheus tropheops chilumba

Post by crowndroyal » Mon Jan 11, 2016 11:07 am

Hello,

I have been searching everywhere to try and find the exact positive ID on this fish

Image

the original page is here https://www.ciklid.org/artregister/art.php?ID=2007


If anyone can identify the actual species and type and the location they are from that would be great.

I have been searching and searching to get some and no one ever seems to have them.

Thank you all for the help in advance.

I used to have Tropheops sp "chilumba", but they looked different (no red fins, especially):

Having said that, tropheops is stil a whole world to discover, I think. There's many different species and - especially - varieties. It could also be a matter of age. Maybe the red doesn't show until later?

Too Much red. Probably a manmade fish.
