One of site’s oldest species profiles is getting a reboot. The original Haplochromis sp. ‘Kenya gold’ article may have even been published when this site was known as VatoElvis.com. The new article, written by Don Greg Steeves, adds some new insight into the species and also includes photos.

The Victoria Basin species Haplochromis sp. ‘Kenya gold’ gets its name from its color. As seen in the picture above, the gold color is unusual for cichlids and adds contrast to any tank setup. H. sp. ‘Kenya gold’ is often sought after in the hobby, especially among Victorian cichlid enthusiasts. Unfortunately it isn’t often found on many stock lists. For more information on this endangered species, read the new Species Profile.
