I think Red Kachese should be at the top of the list. The Moliro doesn't look nearly as good as the Kachese when colored up.

I've changed my mind. Moliros used to be my favorite reds, but after seeing the pics of the Kalambwe that both Greg and Turon have, I would switch my vote to them. If I had the extra tank space I would buy a group of those in a heartbeat. Unfortunately, I think they might crossbreed with my Kasangas.

sp. red stem originally from moorii and red cheek stem originally from brichardi so i don't think that you can classify them the same.

Moliro gets my vote...maybe I'm just biased!

The moliros look nice so does the ndole. That pic above of the ndole looks a bit enhanced.
