Hi,

I'm looking for some help to ID these guys. These were sold to a friend of mine as 'yellow tail mbamba'. We assumed therefore that they were Labidochromis sp. 'mbamba'. However, looking through the profiles on cichlid-forum.com, I can see some similarities to Ps elongatus 'mpanga'. Here is a pic of the male and one of my females.

Any help would be appreciated.

Cheers

From a Breeder of these..................Definately Pseudotropheus Elongatus Mpanga!!!!

First pic is a nice dominant male, second pic looks very much like a female which is ready to breed....belly full of eggs!! She'll probably be holding very soon.

Good Luck.

Sounds like you're in for a lot of baby Mpanga fry soon.

My three females have not stopped breeding....they have about 2-3 weeks rest in between mouthfulls. Once they start, they just don't stop.

You'll enjoy every minute as it's such a great learning experience.
