I was reviewing Willem Heinjs' DVD once again on the Nicaraguan cichlid species and the part showing the three Lake Apoyo Amphilophus species.  It had me wondering why A. astorquii is not yet within the hobby. If I have it right, it was descrbed in the narration with the common name "squid", and looked to be very prevalent within the lake, nests described as occuring every meter.  Of course since then two more species have been described - A. supercilius and A. globosus so maybe the "squid" species is another described species, but again why not in the hobby?

I have a confession. I'm a cichlaholic.

Sam - I'm having trouble finding the 2008 paper that identified chancho among two other midas complex species.  Do you have a copy or link you can share?  Thanks, sorry if this is a repeat request, I feel I have already asked you this.
