    Do we have any keepers of Barombi Mbo cichlids, such as Myaka myaka? If so, what do you keep? What have you kept? And what were your experiences?

    Thanks in advance

    Fairly sure nobody on here is currently keeping fishes from Lake Barombi, but Chester Zoo used to have a Lake Barombi exhibit if I remember correctly – including Myaka myaka.

    They did. Thats the one species I’m toying with the idea of keeping. /sad.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:(” border=”0″ alt=”sad.gif” />

    Have you seen Myaka on sale somewhere Jared? A nice killifish from the lake is Procatopus similis “Barombi”…

    I have. Along with Stomatepia pindu and Pungu maclareni. I’m aware of their IUCN status and will stress these are not F0 fish. If they were I wouldn’t buy them. /smile.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:)” border=”0″ alt=”smile.gif” />

    Hi Jared I’ve done a bit of research and it seems that Myaka myaka hasn’t been exported for years. All the fish imported under that name have turned out to be one of the Sarotherodon from the lake. I’ve also managed to get hold of a couple of papers about the species found there. You want?

    Yes please. These are not FO fish mind. If you can PM me the details that would be great, I’ll show you who has them too.

    Jared the files are in PDF format. Either whack your email up in this thread or pm me if you’re not comfortable doing that. I realise we have a few unsavoury sorts on here…
