Some of my Maswa got the band extending to the dorsal. Is this normal?

Typically the yellow band does not extend to the dorsal fin. However, they have a great looking bands. Is it me or just the lighting on the bottom picture, makes it look like a white band?

Don't know any variant of dubs with bands extending into dorsal and never seen one.
Were they sold you as maswas?

Fascinating

I remember the info that went back and forth a couple years ago about the 'Starry Night Duboisi' which were nothing more than line bred Maswa Duboisi from Brundi fish farm.... These fish were reportedly said to hold their spots for quite a while. And they did.

I got six of those from a fella and they now have grown up to be pretty nifty fish. Breed quite regularly and the fry are quite awesome to look at.

Anyway.... I wonder if these are another attempt at the line breeding... :huh:

Are these wild caughts? Are they from a local person? if so, can you find out where they got them? Would be curious as to where they originated from?

Still pretty nifty looking fish.

Bill

Yes! I remember that. I did some more research and talked to "Jordin" who use to work at LiveFishDirect.com and he told me that they get their Maswa from a guy named "Doug Conkling" from Reserve Stock Cichlids. I'd like to get a conformation on that if your reading this Doug. So heres a quick vid on them,
