  1. Just a little vid showing why these fish are so cool They just got moved to a new home and yep no surprise it's turf war time. At least you can keep these guys together and not lose them. The males displaying are awesome fish so hope you enjoy the little vid http://vid1222.photobucket.com/albums/dd487/goldenswimmers/Mobile%20Uploads/trim.BAF1770D-1052-4174-8C46-9C8E9A50BBAA_zpsn5mglsbm.mp4
  2. Was very lucky recently to have the opportunity to get my hands on some of these L.attentuatus...It took a nice long road trip but was well worth the effort and hope to be getting these great guys back into the hobby some more.... Very sexy fish when displaying and the boys get a black "army" style patterning which looks very cool with the neon blue/purple that they have running down their sides... So heres some pics..
  3. Just need to share my love for one of the great misunderstood cichlid families from the great Lake Tanganyika.... Yep its the Lepidiolamprologus family... Have to say I really am appreciating this group of super aggressive(ok you do "if your lucky" get the odd peaceful individual)underwater hunters and I don't know if its the fish or the challenge the fish themselves pose when it comes to their care and maintenance that has me hooked..either way as adults they are striking fish and will demand your viewing time when looking at a tank..I prefer the bigger open water members of the family personally but they are a very unique and interesting group of fish...from the big Profundicola to the little shell dwelling Hecqui.. Here is a quick excerpt from Practical Fish Keeping: "There are currently seven(?) valid species in Lepidiolamprologus: attenuatus, cunningtoni, elongatus, kendali, mimicus, nkambae and profundicola. All share the same elongate shape and predatory mouth, and range from 15-30cm/6-12” in length, so large as Lamprologine cichlids go. They become impressive as they grow and mature, with highly visible teeth, and a 30cm L.elongatus must be a terrifying sight for any small fish unlucky enough to share the same habitat." Well now here's a look at some of the family members.. Lepidiolamprologus Profundicola (believed to be here in Oz and if so very very rare) Lepidiolamprologus Elongatus (very rare) Lepidiolamprologus Kendali (uncommon/rare) Lepidiolamprologus Nkambae (rare/very rare) Very hard to spot differences between Kendalli and Nkambae but DNA tests prove they are separate varieties. Lepidiolamprologus Attenuatus (very rare) Lepidiolamprologus Cunningtoni (very rare) Lepidiolamprologus Mimicus (not available!?) Lepidiolamprologus Kamambae (newly discovered and not available!) And here's some of the smaller guys....yep still with some serious attitude Lepidiolamprologus Lemairii (uncommon) Lepidiolamprologus Pleuromaculatus (very rare/not available!?) Lepidiolamprologus Boulengeri (uncommon) Lepidiolamprologus Hecqui (uncommon)
  4. Just some pics of these guys, Got these at the end of last year i think. Growing nicely. All 6 are in a 3x18x18 tank. They havnt killed each other yet, all around 6-8cm i think. [MENTION=6679]aqc247[/MENTION]
  5. So thoughts on these fellas guys...newish discovery in the lake and almost looks like a cross between the kendalli and the elongatus ... Sciency Thoughts: A new species of Cichlid Fish from Lake Tanganyika. Also see the profundicola(Image D at the bottom of the comparison)...such a pity we dont have these guys here..you can really see the step up into the "big" predators with these guys.. Had to share this image of a L.profundicola(looks like a tanganyikan fusco or nigriventer !)...
  6. wanted to get a Lepidiolamprologus kendalli for a display tank, but was worried about my Cyprichromis and Brevis. they hold their own with a 5" Neolamprologus tretocephalus, Neolamprologus leleupi and a few tropheus. Any advice on good tankmates would be greatly appreciated.
