They are also not Malawian. They are from Lake Barombi Mbo, a small crater lake in WEST Africa. Yes, they are rare. They only come from this lake, and it is small and not easily reached.

The Zoo used to give young away (20 or so per 4 foot tank) to those with big tanks who seriously wanted to help maintain this species. Sadly this main population was lost when the tank broke.

Very hard to say what the price should be.

All the best James
