Stomatepia pindu spawning video

A great video showing a pair of Stomatepia pindu spawning in an aquarium.

This rare cichlid is native to the crater lake Barombi Mbo in West Cameroon. At one time it was impossible to find in the hobby, but over the years it has become increasingly available. S. pindu can only be found in Barombi Mbo and is listed as critically endangered. Its native home is threatened by oil exploration, pollution and natural CO2 releases from the lake bottom.

Stomatepia pindu males and females often display all black coloration as pictured below. If you would like learn more about S. pindu and see more great pictures, make sure to read the Species Article.
