Which variant P. nyererei?

Post by mamike » Thu Feb 26, 2015 12:30 pm

I bought 6 sickly looking fish at a wholesaler many months ago. I was told they were "Flamebacks". I lost three of them but ended up with a male and two females of what I think may be P. nyererei Python Island. The one female has spawned twice, first spawn netted 8 fry, second spawn netted 36 fry. I'd like to hear anyone else's opinion as to what variant this may be.

Hard to tell in the pic but the female does look like some sort of nyererei but the male looks like it can be a flame back from Lake kyoga or possibly a hybrid kyoga flameback
