I've seen a lot of sales on Yala Swamp Fulu/Hap variant. It's similar to the Christmas Fulu. I've seen it on several websites and wondered if Cichlid Forum will ever include it in their profiles. There is a Yala Swamp spot bar, but it's not the same fish. Is there something in the works to add this fish?

I don't know, I'm wondering if they're the same fish. I keep looking at videos on youtube and one in particular looks identical to my yala swamp, but it's labeled as the spot bar/Mbipia Lutea. I wonder if anyone from CichlidForum can verify this or not.

Yala Swamp is a location and not the complete name of any fish. There is no way that any of us can figure out what species fish you are talking about with that description. We have been working on enhancing and updating the profiles for the past month or so and are not yet done.

The profiles will be dealing with valid names and common names of Victoriian cichlids available in the hobby. How that relates to your fish, we have no way of knowing.

Sorry I can't be more help.

That's what I have. I've been breeding them for a couple years now. The pics here in cichlid forum don't do it justice. My males are amazing. They have a lot of character as well. I have them in a 75 with some Astatotilapia latifasciata and they do very well together.

Very Nice fish.
I have the same species ( if that is what they really are) I sent pictures to CARES and I should have a definitive answer on the exact name of the fish very soon.

They look exactly how mine did when they were that size.

I recently saw a picture of an adult male Mbipia cf Lutea yala Swamp Crossbar on dave schumacher's website that looked identical to my male. So hopefully that is what we have.

Do you mind me asking where you got yours?

Mine came from Willbo who started this post.

I belong to a program called CAST which keeps the line of endangered species...I get the fish free so I do not own them...just raise them in donated tank space...breed them and pass the fry on...

USA Fish from texas..Kory Watkins....

We might try trading to strengthen the genetic line with some diversity.
