that is great Mschn99 ... and your fish are so beautiful. What a great way to share your tank space ... with species that are threatened or in need of our care and sharing. I now have 4 species that are C.A.R.E.S. registered...am thinking I'll be building on that number ... as I love all of them and think they are the best fish. I know that there are many people out there that have devoted years to the C.A.R.E.S effort ... I am just a baby in this area but like you very excited to be a part of it. I know you will do great with anything you put your mind and tanks to Mschn99 ... GO C.A.R.E.S

Even if most dont understand it...its fun having rare and different fish that you can have experts feel comfortable calling pure down to the collection point! These guys are in a species only tank right now, but i have considered adding white top hara to the tank just because for my space right now this 72 gallon with only one species is not too colorful and not helping my breeding program as much as it could. All that said.......others may not appreciat the females and the lack of coloration....but i love the species!!

there would be no reason to reintroduce them, right now the nyererei populations are stable in the lake
