possibly, its hard to tell from your pics but i believe the kapampa has spots along the entire length of its body

too young to tell. It's not Ikola or Mpimbwe, they don't have the blue lower jaw. Could be Kasanga but could some other as well. Orange Dorsal maybe. It's definetly an Eretmodus.

No black dot in the dorsal so not a Makombe, looks like a Eret. cyan. "Blue Spot" Zambian, I get them in often, the yellow bars in the side, the blue dots, the tinge of orange in the dorsal throws me off alittle the Kigoma usually show that, Greg :thumbsup:

The Kasanga is not the only Eret with blue dots along the body and the fish on your pics is still young. If it's Kasanga then good luck with a pair. These guys are mean
