Here's a few pics of some of my new malawis,
If someone can id them? i'd be much oblidged. :)



Image
Nimbochromis venustus





Image
Maylandia greyshakei





Image
The pattern on one is some what similar to Psuedotropheus livingstonii but with the bar through the eye they are reminiscent of the lake Victoria cichlids. The fish at the back Maylandia greyshakei Female. After much research the bottom fis is a female Astatotilapia latifasciata Female (Lake Victoria)

Nice pics. I hope you don't mind me taking the liberty of adding the names to your pics. The M. greyshakei female, not 100% on that one but I will get confirmation. The one what I suspect as being Vics, will also get positive ID soon. In good spirit,

You must have an old book :lol: To be honest I never noticed the Psuedotropheus bit so I thought you were spot on. :woot: Yeah. In general it is one of the problems with the Malawi's, there are quite a few which have been wrongly classified in the past. Keeping up with etymology/taxonomy is a task in it's self. One of my latest discoveries is the reclassification of Psuedotropheus kingsizii to Cynotilipia afro sp. kingsizii. Not 100% on the latter but it is what I have been led to belive.

<span style='color:red'><span style='font-size:21pt;line-height:100%'>*</span></span> Could also be possible that it is a female of the Otopharnynx group. Show it again in a month or two. :gulp: :tup:

My book was published in 88, so anything could have happened since then! *Makes note - must find new books.....* :lol:

Sorry late getting back on this one. Some 100+ probably nearer 200 have been re classified since then. Out of interest does it still have some as Haplochromis?
