Personal notes:  I received a colony of 11 Neochromis rufocaudalis "Saa Nane Island" in July of 2011. They were decendants of a shipment of Victorian cichlids that came from Germany in 2010.  They are in a single species 55 gallon tank planted heavily with large java ferns.  I found them to be super aggressive.  They did breed for me several times before killing eachother off in a few years.
