    I’ve told him about the site Matt, but as far as i know he’s not in any forum.
    when you meet up with Pete ask him about Bob, he should coroborate what i’ve said about him.
    btw Pete drinks anything mate, he’s a lush.

    the only problem i can see is that Mbuna are buggers for crossing, so Mick with four different species your liable to have a hybrid or two happening mate.
    sorry to put a downer on your plans.
    i once saw a lads tank that only had males in and i gotta say it looked brilliant.

    ps i have a mate that i would class as the most knowledgable malawi /tanganican cichlid in the UK, he’s bred fish that were thought to have not yet bred he once surprised Ad Konnings with a species that he’d bred 18 mths before anyone else, Ad thought they had’nt been bred yet.
    his name is Bob Barnes.

    looking through our norm size book it lists them as leveretti kweichowensis and there’s also leveretti leveretti?.

    I have B kweichowensis Matt, i’ve found it’s a fish that likes to stay hidden until food goes in the tank then it’s all over the place, it has S lineolata in with it that are slightly smaller than it and the Beaufortia rules the roost against them.
    i’ve only seen them in shops as contaminants never a full shipment of them.

    there’s a possibily of them being D pathirana fry, Andy found some fry and grew them on, maybe he could shed some light on this fish.

    were they from Graham Tylsley?
    i asked him for some youngsters as i knew he was breeding them, but i asked for normals and he brought me the albino form instead.
    they were well proportion fry though so i kept them.

    beautiful fish to keep, i loved having them.
    the males in breeding mode were a sight to see, all the finnage turned a coffee colour and a very prolific fish if you left them in situ with a few females to court.

    sometimes Matt they started out as good eggs but while in the drying they either went bad or just dissapeared leaving just peat in the end, other times i got really good hatches????.

    not really difficult Matt, they are prone to gatting velvet disease though, the breeding is a bit hit and miss though, easy to spawn but the eggs are a b*gg*r to hatch sometimes.

    the eggs hatch in 3-4 days depending on the temp of the tank, a rule of thumb is 7 days from laying is the first time you feed them.
    not sure on the tree Lizzy, the fry seem to swim to an area thats dark so a piece of bogwood propped up a few cm would be fine.
