I just got my lion's cove afra today, unfortunately just one because I couldn't wait another three weeks for the females. I would appreciate it anybody has got a few pics they would like share with me. thanks
You would have to speak with Ad Konings. He has them in the genus because they are similar, but I guess he has found sufficient differences from the species afra. They are not classified yet.justin323 said:But why isn't it an afra?
Just like with any other mbuna (such as the Metriaclima genus), the Cynotilapia genus is split up based on physical features (body shape, color, dentition, etc.). Cyno. afra are their own species, as well as the Cyno. sp. lion, Cyno. sp. mbamba, etc.justin323 said:But why isn't it an afra? I thought that was how it was classified :-?
(I post pics of mine as soon as they wake up )
