I know I shouldn't have, but I couldn't resist these wee fellas when
I seen them at my LFS, colours are stunning.
I researched them and i'm almost sure they are Astatotilapia latifasciata, commonly referred to as the "Zebra Obliquidens."
They are happily swimming with my mbuna, no issues so far, if any
trouble materialises, i'll move them to their own little set up.
