Id of shell dweller needed

Mon Apr 15, 2019 9:49 am

Hi everyone,

First time posting here - I've got a tanganyikan setup and have just brought this large shellie home. He's in with my ocellatus and doing really well but I've no idea what he is. He was dropped in by a local who was decommissioning his tank - seems he didn't know either. Have done some reading and just couldn't tie down a species. My best guess is a braves but this fella doesn't seem to have the light striping I'm used to on that species.

Any info much appreciated!

It is definitely a Brevis. If I had to guess, I would say M'toto Zebra but definitely a brevis. Beautiful fish. Enjoy!
