Sardine cichlid

Recommended Posts

Never been a big African cichlid person, I was looking at the latest Practical Fish Keeping, they had an interesting article on unusual cichlids. Sardine Cichlids were amongst them.Wow evolution is alive and well in the lakes, amazing. Can we get them here ?post-3726-1471163112152_thumb.jpeg

Cyprichromis leptosoma's are called the sardine cichlid. It used to be a common name for them and yes you can get a boat ton of different variants in Australia and Brisbane.
