Yupers! That's one good looking Namansi too.

Namansi and ulwile fry look exactly the same.

I have seen firey fry apply to both fish. Historically the trade name was used for Namansi fry but was later applied to ulwiles also....either way it's just a trade name.

Namansi are reportedly a deeper water fish which may increase cost in collection and as a result may have something to do with their "rareness" in the states. But I think it's mainly about demand. Most people are going to pick RR, lufubu, or ilangi over these fish.

All of the Tropheus brichardi type fry that I saw around the Kipili area look the same, the color may be a little more intense in some areas. However all of the parents do grow up to look different. They grow into your basic brown Tropheus with some yellow somewhere on the body dependent on their location. The fry are outstanding, but there is also something special about a brown Tropheus that I really like!!! I am working with Tropheus brichardi ulwile and my fry look very much like yours.

But then again, there is nothing cuter then Tropheus fry!!!

Cichlid Power!

Nice. Where did you buy them? If you don't mind me asking. Been wanting a group myself.
