Certainly a nice looking fish. There are been a few people that have brought these in but they have been in small numbers.

nkanda very similar to my untrained eye maybe fins different shape?

from my understanding masinje has 3 rows of 4 spots on the anal fin where as nkanda is more of a splattering lupingu has a few rows of 6 spots or so

nkanda seems to be more of a lighter blue across the dorsil and masinje has a white edge beautiful fish none the less

correct me if im wrong

They just released the African Cichlids that they recently imported out of Quarantine on Friday. Don't believe there were any rare species or interesting ones that caught my eyes though. 

A few dragon blood, marble/OB peacocks, baenschi peacocks, rubin red.

They've got Copadichromis geertsi virginalis blotch fry if you're interested - I believe this specie is rare? :/

Unfortunately Meng isn't there anymore :( He was my go to guy when it comes to cichlids.
