Below are four of my young 2 inch (5 cm) Chromidotilapia guntheri Loennbergii

The next two pictures are one of the males.

Below are some of the females

 

I bought six (4M:2F) of the Chromidotilapia guntheri Loennbergii at the ACA convention in Chicago in July of 2006.  So far they seem to be very aggressive toward each other.  These are West African riverines.  They are pairbonding 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.
