Very nice.
Looks like Labeotropheus Fuelleborni (Katale).

yep they are lab. fulleborni. not sure of the location, but i agree that katale seems the most similar. pity the females are pretty ugly looking imo, but i guess that just makes the male look even better by comparison??

Yep these are beautiful fish, but ditto on the aggression.

yeah they have massive attitudes already. im thinking that my cynotilapia sp. lion would be the right choice for tankmates.

And of course, you need a bunch of females.

yeah i only have four at the moment, im thinking six might do it, what do u reckon? with some other species i will be trying to keep a sub male in the colony in case the alpha male dies for some reason, i wont have to chase up a replacement. but have my doubts whether this will work with the fulleborni, i have seen how relentless they are! and the sub males cant try and go invisible like melanochromis and the rest...

I think a sub dominant male will just get beaten up and end up dead. Try and add a few more females. The male labeotropheus will probably be the dominant fish in your tank.
