  1. I guess you can say so, but how much under the microscope (a*nal) do you want to go? F0 = WC from the lake, but what is Pond? technically is still wild, just bred from ponds on the lake, but is it allocated as 'Pond bred' or F1? Is it that when F0 fish are bred in 'our tanks' that then they are classified as F1, F2 etc? or is it when they leave the lake water? or when they start to be fed on commercial feed? And why should German bred be any better than Aussie bred? If you say that two F0s produced F1 progeny, (Filial system - only as a label used to make it easier to follow th
  2. Just an update on P. saulosi wild population
  3. Yep we were extremely lucky to stumble on the pits and even luckier to see this guy return. In another video from a professional group (Earth Touch), they only filmed pits but did not see any fish. If you get the chance, you should certainly jump on it. The opportunity to to go to these remote locations with a fully organised and experienced tour guide may not be available in the future. Regards MacDyver
  4. Larry is calling for peeps to join his Lake Malawi Dive Safari scheduled for October. He is finalising the itinerary and will call for deposits. There are 3 or 4 spots left.So to give Malawi Cichlids a plug.... here's some of what you can expect ..... see it first hand with your own eyes, without the waffle you read on the net or viral info from so so 'breeders'
  5. Hi Andrew Just tonight we had Anton speak up here at QCG. He gave two great presentations (West African Fishes and Bettas) but has a library of talks to tailor your needs. It was great to hear about different fish than to the usual Rift Lakes or Americans. I mentioned that he was scheduled to speak with you down there, but he has yet to be informed of the details (it could be due to happen this weekend or after he visits Melbourne?). Anyhow showing some QLDer hospitality, having been on safari with him and meeting you last year, I said that I would give you a heads up. I
  6. No probs Mic. Could also be Kipili variant lol just to throw a spanner in the works ....
  7. Agreed with previous - not a Magara. Could be Nkondwe, Kekese (if rainbow), Moliro (if gets green) or Kanoni (but yours has dorsal pattern). I have not seen Kekese in the flesh but have the others. Nice fish you have esp. during display dress, but remember you can get variations amongst the same population. Great they are breeding for you too! Here are a couple of pics from Nkondwe Is. last trip. There was an algae bloom so viz was not the best plus no filter or strong light on the Gpro. These were seen deeper than O. boops and massive Cyp colonies but I did see some in shallower depths also.
  8. FYI - on Cichlids of Lake Tanganyika on FB, quote by Ad Konings response to people's post on overfishing of endangered species. From Chris that owns Lake Shore Lodge in Kipili. Cichlids of Lake TanganyikaAugust 16 at 11:12pm · Please Read NNB!! A quote from Ad Konings: "I would like to clarify some of the misconceptions readers may have about over-fishing and extinction. Some believe that when not the last individual of a certain species/population has been fished out of the lake, there is still hope that the species may recover. Of course it is true that it is almost impossible to catch t
  9. Nice write up Ged and photos too. Can you ask your friend with the elongatus if they would like a playmate? Cheers Ian
  10. Chris - sp. coatza he seemed happy with, but surprisingly it was the zonatus that got the sin bin..., It wasn't clear if he referred to wild fish or captive bred. They have kept them a lot longer than us, so might not be fresh news (think I need to subscribe to his website lol), but the words hybrid and guttulatus got a mention though... And whether his own opinion, as a collective or evidence from research data??
  11. Good to see you guys make it up here Chris. @Pat - I didn't realise you had attended. Did you like it when Juan showed the location distribution for the (inland) coatzacoalcos and (coastal) zonatus? I asked him about the two species later and he gave his opinion about the zonatus, which I got the impression he was working on an article or update regarding its classification.... Regards, Ian
  12. Dare say feds may have increased the likelyhood that introduction of species into native waterways might occur in order to fix a 'local' supply source ie. livebearers, anabantids as an example?.. even cichlids cough cough....
  13. Thanks guys, yes nice fish and good to read at least two other fish keepers have heard the locality before. Advertised earlier this year and have decided to hold and grow out.Http://www.aceforums.com.au/index.php?showtopic=57507&hl=nkhungu
  14. Thought I would start a new thread from the trewevasae one...
