Here are a couple species of mbuna I am breeding now. Enjoy!

Ps. red top Ndumbi



F1 Met. zebra manda


Ps. sp. slim OB


F1 Cyno. afra jalo (fins are beat up a bit, but he is nice!)


Met. zebra lundo OB yellowchin

Met. mbweca



And the one, the only, Ps. blue dolphin. This is my dominant male at 6" and he is SMOKIN!

Yes he is very nice. I have two groups of them. I do not have pictures of my WC Cyno. afra chimate, Met. msobo Heteropictus, Ps. polits, or yellow labs posted. In 2 weeks i got coming in Labeo. fuelleborni Katale OB, Cyno. afra white top hara, Lab. mbamba, and Met. zebra OB albino red.

Trawler, have you had trouble getting your dolphins to breed? I have talked to many and also heard, and they are very difficult to spawn. I have had 3 unsuccessful spawns, and that was 6 months ago. I am getting 3 new females in 2 weeks, and giving away 3 males to have a ratio of 3m/6f. Hopefully they will start breeding then. They are in a 90g with 1m/4f yellow labs and 3m/4f Met. mbweca.

Thanks everyone for the comments. Looks like I need to get some new pics of the ndumbi. His blaze runs the entire body, as you can see, and most ndumbi's I have seen don't. He is nice, and Im going to put another male with the other group I have to see if I can get 2 fully colored males.

I have a WC pair which spawned the other day , unfortunately she spat or swallowed the eggs.
not bad considering they have only been with me 3 months

I'm just going to stick with 1 pair as this is the first time I have seen them in the UK,
probably the last :(
Hopefully we'll see some good F1's soon though ;)

I will try to get shots of my WC Cyno. afra chimate and Met. msobo Heteropictus this weekend. In 2 weeks I am getting F1 Cyno. afra white top hara, Lab. mbamba, Labeo. fuell. Katale OB, and Met. zebra red OB albino. Thanks for all the comments. The best thing about that ndumbi male is that he looks like that all the time. He is always lit up and he is such a cool fish.

Thanks. I went to my dad's today where most of my tanks are. 2 fish in particular were looking SWEET! 2 of my jalo males were fighting and they were both fully colored. they are very nice. And my Ps. sp. slim OB male was looking fantastic. I will get some shots later next week. School gets out Tuesday.
