Hemichromis cf. elongatus Super Red

In Hemichromis cf elongatus "Super Red" on November 17, 2011 at 2:21 pm

These guys are from Lac Mai-Ndombe in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Wild caught youngsters starting show some colour. They’re gonna look great if they pair off!

Male Hemichromis cf. elongatus "Lac Mai-Ndombe" - He's near the bottom of the pecking order in this tank so not showing much red.

Female is on her own and starting show some red.

These guys are not your average elongatus

This juvenile is about half the size of the other two

  1. Any update on these? I believe I’ve stumbled across 5 of these – which are actually the real H. elongatus. The one we all see as elongatus in the states is an undescribed Nigerian fish according to Anton Lamboj.
