Contact Erik **** of dykemyster.com (site sponsor by the way)... He has tons of experience with haps and I'd expect him to know a lot about them (the mylochromis sp.). He's very friendly too.

What exactly do you want to know about M. laterstriga's anyway?

I just want to know some general info on them. I'm going to be getting some soon and I wanted to know how their temperament is, how large they will get, how easy they are to keep and breed, just the basics. I'll try and contact Erik. Thanks

Coming straight out of my Konings book, 4th edtition "Mylochromis lateristriga grows to a maximum length of abouth 23cm and is encountered infrequently in the southern part of the lake. It digs into the sand and filters any palatable items (mainly crustaceans and insect larvae) from it.

It goes on to say that M Lateristriga appears to be restricted to areas with vegetation as it was almost extripated from Maleri islands through extensive uses of beach seines, which uprroted and moved almost all aquatic plants around the islands. Recently the area has come under protection of a private group overseeing the activites around the islands, and the plants and the cichlids semm to be slowly returning to their original state. " Konings 4th edition pg 292

Btw beautiful fish!!
I hope that helped some..

I haven't personally kept them, but I've known people who have. They are a mid level aggression for Haps, easy to keep and care for. Nice fish.
