Was looking at the beautiful pictures of Ubwari Green and Malagarasi by Gernot in the other thread and was thinking:

I wonder why the adaptation to blue eyes on some of the Brichardi types? Why didn't all of the Troph species develop this trait? What advantage is blue eyes?

to see each other with.....my only guess.

they are mostly brown and some live deeper in the lake (compared to other trophs) so it's harder for them to see each other maybe.

or, maybe the females just like the blue eyes more and only the males with blue eyes get to breed until they all have blue eyes.

I like them a lot b/c of their blue eyes...I miss my old ulwiles colony now.
I ate my fish that died.
