Wild Caught Shot

Post by Larry Johnson on Wed Jan 27, 2010 2:49 am

Ok, here's a guessing game for you all. This is where I can get some of you "back" for all the ID's I've been doing Exclamation
(and it does not hurt to learn either)
This picture was taken on my recent trip to Malawi.

Name that Fish!




Enjoy, Larry

Aulonocara sp. "Yellow Collar" ?

Edit: second guess -- Copadichromis sp. "Kawanga" south of Lupingui

Wowa, this is the Malawi section! You aliens are on the wrong court Basketball

OK Copadichromis is correct! Now what species is it,,,,where's all the guys with their Konings 3rd and 4th editions!

Seems I get the same reaction when I show some hand shots when I do my speaking engagments,,,the cichlid guys cannot figure it out if they have not seen the picture in a book! Lets give it a few more days,,,but searching the Copadichromis group really narrows it down!

This is "Just for Fun" and a good way to learn about the fish we love. Very Happy

Cheers,Larry

How much of a failure is it if I've look at every Copadichromis in the 4th edition and still don't know what it is? laughing

Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy
Betty its there!
This is where you have to look and compare a bit harder, the picture is in the 3 rd and 4 th.
,the cichlid guys cannot figure it out if they have not seen the picture in a book!
I know the problem is that I have a much nicer, more descriptive picture than what is pictured in the book (if that's a hint) , I'm sure more people would try to obtain this fish.

Betty when I tell you I know you are going to have a big sigh,,, lol!

Okay, I'll have to take another look! study

The fish in your picture shows a lot of yellow and that dark face and lower fins are so striking. I couldn't find anything with that combination.

Copadichromis kawanga is correct. bounce
Thanks for getting it right Rift_Lake_Rules!
Actually the species looks the same along this entire area/coast but this picture was taken at Ruware.(110 ft depth)
Konings 4th edition bottom right corner picture.
This fish is found over sand close to rocky area's, it is a rather small species at least in the wild,,,probably around 4-4 1/2 inches total length.I have brought this fish in occasionally for my customers, at their request.

Thanks to all for guessing,I'll post some others!

Cheers,Larry

WoooHoooo!!! redneck

Without the book and the clues I would have never gotten it tho. It is a great lookin fish and I'm kinda surprised it's not more popular/known within the hobby but that could probably be said for many of the fish in the lake Wink

I feel a bit cheated Sad This is the 4th reply on the page! First guess was just offhand guessing. Second, I went and looked at profiles on the net for a bit and I found these guys with blazes on their face, but read that south of Lupingui they no longer have blazes. I think I deserve a lollipop at the least.

I missed that too Chad, you had it right first cheers

Larry, tell him what he's won!!!

(Chad, don't get to excited tho, it's just a spot on the sidelines for the next competition Suspect )

lol!

Just kidding Larry, I like the "sideline" the winner rule. It'll keep the same person from winning every time Wink

Good Job FedEXguy!!!

Uh oh, I already guessed on the other thread! I'm probably wrong, though, so we can pretend I'm sidelined.

I must say, if it weren't for internet profiles, I wouldn't know a borleyi from a peacock, haha.

I hope so too Larry! Im hoping they get some of these guys in the next wild caught shipment. They seem to be pretty rare in the hobby but sure are some beauties!
