Hi most Calvus / Compressiceps actually like shells they just like bigger ones.

The sumbu compressiceps tend be a little rare at the time and a bit expensive.

I have one (literally just one) and he is about one inch pretty plain looking compared to other compressiceps.

As for getting some try a wanted ad on our classifieds, aquabid and south east cichlids has them sometimes, I would expect to pay $15 a fish and you probably need to spend about $100 or more to get a group of them.
We got two groups in for our rare fish auction and both groups went about $120 and the club lost money on those.

I stumbled upon a YouTube video that had Altolamprologus Compressiceps Sumbu in it with some Similis.

At this point all I can find about this species is they are suppose to be a dwarf compressiceps and prefer a shell tank like the multi or similis. I have no idea though if that is correct.

If anyone knows more details like mature size, preferred habitat or even where to get some I would appreciate the info.

It seems I have been hooked on the shellies and so far have multifasciatus, similus, purple ocellatus and soon brevis.

Thanks in advance for any info
