I been thinking about saying it but think I must. I kind of find it hard to give just prase.
Those are the best Ilangi I have seen (on a photo) for over 20 years.
Great yellow, good orange dorsal, even purplish face and tail
Are they realy that good in the flesh?
I had believed Ilangi as good as this were extinct both in the wild and in captivity (let alone in the UK) and most for sale look like regular Nkamba Bay Tropheus.
Please tell me where you got them.
What price you payed.
How you are keeping them, tank size, filtration, water perameters, food and numbers, male and female.
And yep put me down on what must I guess be a huge waiting list for young.
I can look up the science for you but were you aware these are not regular moorii nor a regular sp."Red". These yellow guys on the cusp of the two species may be a natural hybrid and thus may if they survive form a new species?
That is if sp."Red" is ever described as a different species and are not seen as variants of moorii. (This is not a good answer because most sp."Red" differ from moorii in a number of significant ways (except for the existance of these halI way guys in the wild would I guess have been formaly recognised as a separate species years ago))
All the best James
