And all I can say is WOW....I love these guys! I bought 7 of them for my 90G.
They have such great personalities! Anyways, just thought I'd share and
see if anyone else had good or bad experiences with these guys. So far so
good for me!
Cool adanac50. I'll look forward to the pics.
Yes, that's a mainagano Melanochromis cyaneorhabdos. The true johanni females are yellow when they are small fry and turn blue when they mature some (I think it's the females) while the maingano are both blue(males & females). Johanni and maingano look alot alike as adults. I dunno why people also gave maingano the nicname johanni. It's confusing and dumb IMO since they are 2 different species :roll: . When I bought mine they were sold to me as electric blue johanni but I'm sure they aren't real johanni and will be able to prove it when the 2 I have holding spit (if everything goes ok and some are female lol).
The single pearlmutt I have occupies a 90g with a large and varied group of mbuna. Altho not overly aggressive, he is the undisputed and rearely challenged "king". He will not initiate aggression but quickly takes on any and all overly aggresive tank mates.
