Had this a while now, brought a few different fish as juveniles. This should be either a Stevni or Sturatgranti of some sort as per the seller.
Any idea what it is?

Thanks, I've placed her in a separate tank until she spits out the fry as I'd like a male for the main tank eventually, but imagine she'd only produce a couple of fry at best at her current size?

What is her size? First couple of times she holds it could be 10. But how do you know she has not held multiple times before? 60 is not an unusual number.

She's a couple of inches, not very large at all. Probably added her 6-9 months ago. Gets on well with all others in a mixed African tank. She's held once before but think she lost the eggs to some haps during a feeding. She's not eating this time, so thought I'd take her out so she doesn't go through it all and lose any fry to the haps (Livingstonii's)
