I have been looking at the genus gallery and I really like the looks of the proto spilonotus Tanzania (liulu), but I have only found them under the name proto isnignus spilonotus Tanz.

They look similar Maybe not the Liulu strain, but I have not been able to find any information confirming that they are the same fish or different fishes.

any help would be appriciated.

Protomelas sp. "insignis small" are the only hap I'm aware of that has the name insignis. They are quite a bit different than Protomelas sp. "Spilonotus Tanzania" which are much more colourful and can easily reach a foot in length.

It's possible the "insignis" you're seeing in conjunction with the spilonotus name, is just a case of mislabeling.

That is what I thought, but they are listing the Tanz. that way which makes mne a little leary about buying them. I have not really found a good source for them yet only recently bought tank big enough to hold them.
