Despite all the loses of native species since the introduction of the Nile Perch to Lake Victoria, new fish like Haplochromis sp. “Kisuule” are still being found. H. sp. “Kisuule” has yet to be officially described, but some people have said it closely resembles fish from the Enterochromis genus. Until then, H. sp. “Kisuule” will sit in the favorite Lake Victoria catch-all genus.

Not much is known of this new fish since being collected by Lawrence Kent. The picture above is of one group given to Greg Steeves of AfricanCichlids.net. Although not fully mature, pictures of the species show outstanding colors. Hopefully H. sp. “Kisuule” will make it into the hobby. To discuss this species visit the Lake Victoria Basin forum.
