Nurungu

I saw a few Serranochromis robustus while diving on the Eastern shoreline. Its quite exciting to see such big fish = reminded me of Napoleon wrasse in the Red Sea.

The biggest mbuna generally are the Petrotilapias. Here's a nice specimen

L trewavasae

A nice male auratus

shoal of female rostratus

Come and have a go if you think you're hard enough! (I wasn't)
Image
Er...dunno what this is - female Melanochromis of some description I suspect
Image
cobalt blue zebra

As with most locations, there's always one special fish and the variant of P.ornatus at Nurungu has to be one of the most beautiful fish in the lake.

Here's a better shot - dunno why these aren't more popular

Amazing photos. Thanks for sharing and those ornatus are stunning.

I live in Eastbourne - the sunniest place in Britain. That isn't really saying much...

Don't watch your Petros too closely. Don't talk to them. Don't feed them bad things - it leads to bloat
