Default Trophues SP Mpimbwe Red Cheek

Dear all,

I have a few question to ask please enlighten me.

1. Does red cheek has pale yellow cheek during juvenile time?
2. I hear the female will stay with stripes is it true? I have one around 5 inches still in stripes or is it sub-male?
3. Is orange cheek same as red cheek?
4. How to differentiate between yellow and red cheek?

Females and young can hold to their stripes, very common. With red cheek they can come in with red, orange or even yellow under the name red cheek. The main ones you want for the real deep red cheek are collected at Katondo and are listed as Tropheus Mpimbwe Red Cheek Katondo when coming from Africa. When they go to that exact local in Mpimbwe you will get the real deal red cheeks. Those are the only ones I will import anymore because they can be so varied.
