:doh: sadly the Thereuterion - only the males tho ? - didn't travel well and had to cull 5 of the males.
when i first saw these my eyes popped out of my head and will be gutted to loose them without getting some fry from them. Left with just 1 male and 4 females.

this is Thereuterion in good condition - or as i remember seeing

got fry from the entebbe, blue obliquidens , red head and degeni with no room to keep them :doh:

Shame you had to cull the male Thereuterion's Paul but congratulations on all the fry, methinks you need more tanks to grow some on. :handgestures-thumbup:

Here is one of the sorry looking males

shame BUT there is another source here in the UK so not as devastating as some of the others would have been.

This is the only picture i have managed to get of the "Entebbe", yep they do look like the blue obliquidens at this age.

I have found the pair to be reclusive but am being told on the French forum they are little DEVIL fish !
I am thinking mbuna are the best tank mates for these when older, just haven't got any.....yet.
