there are several species on there.. where you asking about one in particular? I see what looks like a multie or similis, kinda hard to tell, at the beginning of the part on shellies and the male stealing shells, I think, is callipterus. I'm sure someone else will chime in
I believe it was the one stealing the shells. I'm interested to see what it is....I need a full species name because I may want to try to get some! Thanks
the big one is called
Lamprologus Callipterus
there also was
lamprologus similis.
Whats the name of the cichlid that was dragging the turtle from its eggs. They looked impressive!

*** never mind, I found them Boulengerochromis microlepis. 36inches is quite large.
So the Callipterus is the harem builder shown in the 7 to 8 minute range?
but some males wont get to that size.
