I voted for ndole. Haven't kept them, but they are impressive. There is one listed that I would imagine could be considered "rare", the kalambwe 'bright red'. Never even heard of this one, but if it's anything like the picture I found on the web, it must be unbelievable! Anybody keeping these, or seen them first hand?

Here's a couple pics I put in the gallery. The chipimbi are nice, the moliro are nicer. The whole body pretty much stays red, where the chipmbi can go grayish ahead of the red stripe near the caudal peduncle.

Chipimbi


Moliro

I'm not a big fan of the spc. Red but there's one that was really stunning to me, the Lunangwa South (they are also in Schupke's Aqualog). Those guys here on the pics are just 2.5

All sp. red is not really that red.

I have kept 4 variants total and only have one now.

If you looking for red go with something else.
