I just haven't heard them marketed as "blacks" before - just "Kipili."

Kipili it is then - I've always thought of Kipili as brown; but, hey, if "black" helps sell more fish "good on ya mate" :)

Btw: yours is a good looking fish!

They could be Kipili but they also look like the ones I have from Kabogo

Sorry Razzo, i misunderstood your reply so i replied like this. peace out :fish:

anyway, it might be really mislabeled by the LFS here
and it really much like a KIPILI as may Idol Razzo says

i got him as dark as this https://www.reservestockcichlids.com/product.php?productid=160&cat=3&page=1
but not as dark as our Black Calvus

My male black Zambian
Dull patch on body is a bite mark from my large female julie.
While his "pearls" are small, he makes up for it with his blue fins which I am quite fond of.

He is an impressive fish - love the blue as you pointed out. Didn't see that dull patch you mentioned (maybe one of those things only the artist who painted the picture notices). Beautiful fish!

Hi All,

Some of my 6 new wc Altolamprologus calvus (Black Congo White Pearl) - settling in over the past few weeks and now living in (relative) harmony. All camera-phone pics, so hopefully I'll be able to take some better shots once I get my hand on a decent camera.They range from 2 to 3.5inches approx:

Cheers,

Ivan
PS - If anyone would like to have a go at sexing the fish from the photo's above then that would be very much appreciated. :D I'm especially interested in the dominant member of the group which is seen in the 2nd photo (and also on the left of the 3rd photo)
