I was told real Lufubu are the one's separated easily from Chaitika. But like you said,Slightly different strain. I have seen that in the Lufubu that I had.They were several all looking slight in colour variation.

Hello Tropheusfans,


In my opinion, the varieties more ''rare'' they the Golden Kalambo (Tropheus moorii Golden Kalambo), the Golden Kushangaza (mutation natural of Tropheus brichardi Kabwe) and the Red Belly (natural crossing of Tropheus sp. Bulu Point and Tropheus sp. Kibwesa.



Best regards,

聲gel Arroba

I agree.

The rest on the poll have showed up on varied stocklists in the past 1-2 years...F1 or WC.

Whichever fish on the list that are the rarest are probably the ones no one should be collecting, give them some time to replenish their numbers ! I think we all need to show some respect to the fish we hold in such high regard so they will be around for future generations to enjoy and not just another reminder from the past of used to be !
