The Flameback is easily my favorite. I might have to start breeding them again if I can find some.

By far my favorite fish from victoria that i kept was the Astatotilipia caliptera. However it turned out this species was not endemic to victoria and may be the actual mother fish to all the haplochromines of the region. With evolution taking the lacation and variations in all different directions. I have seen and kept several different variations of the Hap. "flameback". All being nice looking fish. Pundamalia nyerei python island was a close second but they were just too nasty to their females for me.
125 gallon Mixed African Cichlid
125 gallon Furcifer Kigoma 90 gallon Mixed Malawi
75 gallon Mbuna growout
5x55 gallon Peacock colonies
40 breeder Furcifer Ruzibra growing out.
5x20 High growouts and projects.
55 gallon Archocentrus Semperfasciatus

which way do i go here?

pun nyereri is name like haplochorims we should just flop this fish here but there is just about 20 pun. nyereri group most which we as people in the us. hobby have never seen or heard of.the red baron is crimson tide (Red Snout Nyererei)and mwanza gulf are a nice deep red on top

but most people think that pun nyereri is the same fish.and victorians do get called the red and green fish just because say ruby green has been the us. in every state and then some so many think that all victorians look like that or close to it.
