This is the local form of P. m. victoriae I found so attractive.

Here are some that I brought home from collecting site "Kampala 58" (because it is 58km from Kampala on the road to Masaka). Substrate and plants in the set up were all collected from Lake Victoria at Entebbe. I guess you could call it a biotope set up since all components of decor were collected from the Lake.

On a serious note...

I am looking to see if anyone or anyone knows of people that do breed Victorians that would be willing to trade or sell them. I would be interested if you know of any companies, breeders that sell or anyone that is willing to ship to New Brunswick, Canada.

Its getting harder and harder to come across these great fish and unfortunately, I can only breed and populate the ones I have :(
If you know of anyone or if you yourself would be interested please let me know.

Cheers!
