Personal notes:  A hobbyist friend gave me a trio of Harpagochromis cf. vonlinnei in 2016.  He hadn't gotten these fish to breed and was hoping that I would have better luck.  That hasn't proven to be the case as I haven't had any luck with this species either.  When it first appeared in the hobby I had seen it referred to as Harpagochromis sp. "serranus Juma Island".
