Kandchezi Island (Lake Malawi trip 2011)

Postby Dave G » Sat Mar 17, 2012 12:10 pm

This was a nice dive site in the very south of the lake.

One for mbuna fans!

Hmmm - is this a Nyassachromis?

Image

A. chitande (type)
Image

and another one (slightly different)
Image

nice tropheops
Image

A jacobfeibergi - they love hiding in cracks, caves - whatever
Image

Just for you Chris - P. acei. These guys were swimming in the open water all around me! Nobody else saw them - caused some sulking later!
Image

This is a lovely fish - some Tropheops elongatus type
Image

another nice zebra

Wow. Those bb zebras are gorgeous. Nothing like black and white to look dramatic.

Avei are one of my favourites, lovely species, I bet it was amazing swimming with those. :tu:

The first time I went to Malawi I had the hardest time ID'ing fish,,,they never seemed to look or pose the way I had seen them in the books!
Nyassachromis prostoma
Aulonocara sp. 'yellow collar'
Tropheops sp. 'elongatus boadzulu'

Cheers,Larry
