A new article on Astatotilapia latifasciata has been added to the library. The original article by Marc Elieson can still be found here. In addition to more details about A. latifasciata, the new article includes more and larger photos.

Astatotilapia latifasciata is an interesting species originally from Lake Kyoga in the Lake Victoria Basin. With the loss of its natural habitat, A. latifasciata has only been seen in an adjacent lake, Lake Nawampassa. A. latifasciata is a colorful and peaceful cichlid making a great candidate for beginners and anyone looking to add color to their aquarium. Its gentile character works will other Victorian cichlids and even many Lake Malawi species. The new article can be found in the library. To discuss this species visit the Lake Victoria Basin forum.
