Below is one of my young 2 inch (5 cm) Chromidotilapia guntheri guntheri

I bought six of the Chromidotilapia guntheri guntheri at the ACA convention in Chicago in July of 2006.  So far they seem very peaceful and fast growing.

These are west african riverines.  They are pairbonding biparental mouthbrooders that come from soft waters conditions with a slightly acidic to neutral PH.  They share in the care of their young, however it is believed that only the male carries the eggs in it's mouth.  They tend to sift through the sandy substrate in my tank foraging for food.

 Next riverine = Chromidotilapia guntheri Loennbergii                  HOME
