what's new: Lake Tanganyika ~ April 2011

Recently exported from Tanzania, Tropheus brichardi Chungwa has interested hobbyists lately due to its color. This fish is collected near Namansi, Tanzania and can be quite aggressive towards conspecifics.


Tropheus moorii Muzi has been shipped from Zambia several times over the recent years. It is also called “cherry blue rainbow” due to the red and blue colors on the body. Its exact collecting location is not known, but previously thought to be near Malasa Island, Tanzania.



On rare occasions, one or two individuals of Trematocara arrive in import shipments. Here, T. variabile arrived from Burundi, but died shortly thereafter. If this genus holds any interest for you, buy whatever you can find to build your colony!


Newly collected from points south of Namansi, Tanzania, Petrochromis sp. ‘giant blue’ is a very large fish to import and thus rather expensive due to freight costs. Individuals usually arrive larger than 8 inches (20 cm) in total length.
