    Hi Jano

    I used to have a small group of L. ocellatus Zambian Blues that I got from Nick James (who I believe got them from you). They've since all passed away, I never really attempted to raise any of their fry. I really enjoyed them and would jump at the oppurtunity to get more. I'm living in Centurion at the moment, some of my tanks are still in PE though. There I have a colony of N. multifasciatus and a pair of P. nigripinnis. You had many species the last time I spoke to you, how are they all doing?

    Regards,
    Ryan.

    Jano, I'd really like to add some more P. nigripinnis to my pair. Do you have any to spare?

    That's a pity.

    It'll be a while before I can get their tank up here anyway, but it will be good to know if you have any spare.

    Thanks.

    Hey ziyaadb
    Neil from Aquaterra is just returning from a malawi trip. I understand he and his Malawi contact are looking at doing Tangs too. Pieter Noeth used to be the person to go to, but not sure where he is. Doug here in Cape Town has imported some stunning Tropheus in the past...may be worth a call

    Ziyaad, it might be a bit easier if everyone just posts what they'd like Nick to try and get hold of here. Alternatively, you could always PM him your list. :p
