Pundamilia nyererei (Python Is.) I am purchased it as a Hap. Nyererei at the lfs .The Python Is. is a guess on my part based on profile pictures. He is a beautiful fish that changes colors and displays all the time.

I am not sure about python Island really, just a guess. I am sure it is the most common type of
Pundamilia nyererei sold at local fish stores. All I know it that it is a Victorian and a male, based on the coloring and aggressive displays, but even the male part is a guess. Maybe I will try to get some better pics and place in the unidentified section for a better classification.

I haven't seen any Python Is. Nyereri at any LFS.....yet.....perhaps will locate one later. If it's the more common type sold in LFS...it "might" be a Pundamillla Nyereri (Ruti Island) Either way-yours will add some interesting color in the tank and attitude...any female of that species in the tank as well..?? 8)

No female Pundamilia nyererei. I have been in contact with a local breeder and would like to add some females. It is my favorite fish so far, the color is amazing and general attitude. He is always front and center of the tank. Here is a picture from about 2 weeks ago.

:eek: It sure is a pretty fish! You say it has plenty of attitude. What about aggression? Is it mean or do you think it will get mean?

I think I'd have to get some females for him lol. What are his tank mates? Sorry about getting off onto this fish when the thread is suppose to be about your acei fry :oops: lol.
