Does anyone know much about these? Are they common, rare? Ever kept them with Tropheus? Know anyone who sells them? And of course, how much do they cost?

Here is pic's for those that might not of heard of them before: http://www.petrochromis.com/photo_album.0.17.html

Thats the Famula Blue Fin or Famula Kaiser Blue.

I like Petro's the most of all fish, but this species I don't like at all..........I'm sorry, but I have found them to be the most aggressive of all the Petro's I kept.

They go after each other till theirs none left.

I had 8 left that I gave away last week because I couldn't sell them. I would have given them to you if you just paid shipping.

Maybe I just had a bad batch of them, Mike of txtropheustraders may have some and he can give his input on them also.

Good luck in your search.

Thanks for the help! I personally just liked the look of them compared to some of the others i've seen many times before.

The bottom pic is more likely what you will see of the Alpha male of the tank or if males are fighting.......the normal color of them is drab brown.
