hi

I saw a tropheus in my LFS today but they didn't have a clue what type it was and nether do I......

The fish was clearly stressed and the only one in a tank of Malawis....

The fish was almost white with some darker markings only on the tips of its tail.....

It has a Tropheue face.....

The only other identifying marks could be the bright red on the tops of both eyes....

Any ideas anyone ?

Can you post pic. If nearly white with red top of eye sounds like Petrochromis fasciolatus. Check the pics on tinternet.

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