Hemichromis sp. "Moanda" (a.k.a. H. sp. "Muanda") is yet another magnificently-colored jewelfish to become available in the hobby in recent years about which little is known. If the place-name designation is correct, however, this form is found in the lower Congo River drainage in or around Muanda, Democratic Republic of the Congo, and is sympatric with H. stellifer, a species with which a similar color pattern is shared. While H. stellifer exhibits an orangish-beige coloration dorsally and rosey-red coloration ventrally, H. sp. "Monanda/Muanda" exhibits the same color pattern in reverse. Both forms exhibit an iridescent turquoise edge or dot on the body scales. In aquaria H. sp. "Moanda/Muanda" is not nearly as aggressive as congeners, and it is not known whether this exciting new form is a new species or if it corresponds to an existing one. â€"Randall Kohn
