someone better talk to Mhelford

Actually, I have two Pungu. My kid likes to lay claim to my tanks . . . I brought them back from San Jose two years ago.

Pungu are slow-growing sponge eaters. Not an aggressive fish, but they can hold their own. Mine are in with some Vieja breidhori that have fry right now. I once saw him jaw lock the larger Vieja and do just fine. Eating sponges must be hard work!

The funny part about this is that Sam is going away to college in the Fall and I will get his tanks.

Same lake, wrong fish. That is Pungu maclareni. I have two of them and am looking for more if anyone has some. That is probably the most attractive fish from Lake Baraombi-Mbo. Either that or the Myaka myaka.

I have a confession. I'm a cichlaholic.

I bred them and have some fry I'm raising right now. I know Barombi Mbo is supposed to be a relatively new lake, but in person these fish have a very dinosaur like appearance with their large scales and strangely jawed mouth. Really cool to watch these fish eat.

I got the fish from Mike H. at the last GCCA meeting. I think they are cool, but I like ugly fish. They are very peaceful.
