cyno. cape kaiser the same as cyno. ndonga

Postby randomname » Wed Oct 28, 2015 3:18 pm

Cynotilapia zebroides Ndonga and Cynotilapia zebroides Cape Kaiser ''Black'' are they the same fish? I am having trouble finding any information on cape kaisers other than that they are ndonga.

They are different collection points and therefore not the same fish. But the species is Cynotilapia zebroides.

Are you thinking behavior or husbandry might be different?

Not at all I am just trying to look up information about these fish, There are only a few things on google which don't really talk about them it only shows up in the search because someone used the name, the only information I collected from this was that the ndonga and cape kaiser were the same fish, and I only have 4 pictures that I can find of cape kaisers. They weren't listed as rare from where I bought them so I was thinking maybe cape kaiser was just another name for ndonga after seeing that google search.

Cape Kaiser is quite a bit further north than Ndonga. You can see both on p 4, Malawi Cichlids in their natural habitat 4th Edition by Ad Konings.

Bringing this back to life because I would love to get my hands on some Ndonga. Anybody know a source in Canada/US for this species?

I'm not sure I've ever seen the Ndonga collection point offered for sale in the U.S. (I certainly don't check every importer's list, but they are definitely rare or extremely rare here). The Cape Kaisers I've seen a small handful of times. Nice looking fish, for sure!
