Melanochromis Perileucos

Postby ha77 » Wed Apr 05, 2017 3:55 pm

Any body currently or have kept these? I picked some up recently but had never even heard of them before that day. Anyways one of my new favourite fish to say the least. Anybody have general insight into these guys? Can the females take on full male color, good tank mates etc.
Also just how rare are they.... Cant seem to find any else for sale anywhere...
Cheers.

Pretty rare in the hobby, think they used to be more common before Maingano and Demasoni became widely available. Think they are related to the Johanni types and the Elongatus Likoma type.

Pretty cool if a male looks like this wild pic I found on the webs.
