And by the way what do you think about keeping Petros famula, moshi and trewavasae in the same tank - any possibilities of crossbreeding?

I wouldnt be worried about cross breeding, but i would be worried about breeding stopping all together. (except the Moshi) Congrats on the spawn :thumbsup:

Great view :)
Boby, do you know where your famulas have been kept?

I have Moshi and Trewavasae in the same tank. I have never seen any problems with cross breeding. I'm sure that also P. Famula can be kept in the same tank

Do you know what collection point your famulas are from?

Thanks for your inputs guys!

I've bought the famulas under the trade name "Kaiser". I suppose they are collected near Chimba but I'm not certain about that.

At the moment they live with Moshis and a colony of Trophs (Bulu point) and they breed for the second time. :)

Update:

I made a mistake - I've stripped the female too early because I had to go on holidays. The I've put the eggs in and egg-thumbler. Only one survived to become fry.

Boby_: One of the LFS here received Petrochromis fish in 2007 under the trade name "Kaiser Blue", which later, when 4"+ in size, were identified by members of another forum as Petrochromis Famula "Nyanza Lac", synonym "Mpimbwe". Your fish appear somewhat different in colour than mine; do you have any shots showing the dorsal extended? And with more illumination on the caudal?
