    Good luck finding pure bred aulonocara. .I can comfortably or rather uncomfortably say that 90 percent of petshop stock is crossbred malawis that do not look close to what they supposed to..used to keep and breed wild caught malawis.best bet is to contact Neil at aquaterra fish farm (his shop is called fish etc) in stellenbosch western cape..He imports wild caught and sells the babies..He might be able to sort u ouy

    strawberry peacocks are part of the hybrid peacocks I refer to..its a mutation of the aulonocara maleri variant.

    to give you an idea of what I refer to as the pure bred malawis and tanganyikans...here are some pics..I might dare to say that colours might be compared to marine fish:eek: jj

    btw..these were from my tank:whistling:..excuse the dirty glass and poor quality pics..taken with nokia n70
