No, they are different. Moba II are Green Murago's. Brown Stripes on greenish yellow bodies. Teal to light green dorsal fins, light blue polka dot faces.

Greg, I absolutely agree with everything in your initial post. It is no different than someone breeding endangered Lake Victorian cichlids (there are a lot of vics endangered), which are on the C.A.R.E.S list.

I personally believe the more endangered the more important it is for that species to be a species only tank, in order to prevent cross breeding. I know you are a thoughtful breeder as well as one that is concerned about the well being of not just this endangered species but any that you keep or breed. So hopefully many will people will start up colonies and take the same care as you will take.

This variant is becoming one my favorites. Eventually I will have to sell a limb and get some from you Andrew . Oh and sell an organ too so I can get a house with a bigger basement. Glad to see they are already breeding for you, it must mean you are making them happy.
