Here is a new catch for a rare specie of vics, Astatotilapia aneocolor.

I acquired 9 of these recently with a catch of 8 a few months back.

This is an awesome European strain. Not sure of its background other then that.
.
They are aprox 1" in TL

Enjoy the pics folks!!

Hey All,

Very Nice!!! :thumb: jts_aquatics

Would enjoy picking up a group of these guys.

Where would Peter at Atlantis be located and do you know if he has any more and is he on this forum?

Any info. would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks for sharing,

Jason

Very Sweet fish! What is their common / scientific name?
The not-too-common name is "Yellow Belly Albert". I've also heard them called a "Large Mouth Albert".

Here's mine (although I'm no longer keeping them).

I don't mean to be picky, but the spelling is aeneocolor.

Sweet Fish! I really like the spawning log structure guy! It was very nice. How aggressive are they? Minnimum tank size? How much did you pay for them?

Sorry it has taken so long to reply.

Atlantis is in New York and Last I knew he had some more come in.

They have spawned for me but the female holding is only 3/4", so I dont expect to get any fry from her this time around. Hopefully next time. I have 6 males and 3 females.

This is a very nice strain and a very rare fish in the US hobby.

Thanks about the spelling correction. I didnt look the name up to get it correct before posting but thats what they are. He was selling them (Atlantis) as Hap sp yellow belly on his list.

Wow!!!!! Nice Aenocolors. I wouldn't mind keeping some. How much were they and where did you purchase them. Would you be willing to sell your group?
