Besides planetcatfish.com and scotcat.com is there any other website that would be worth visiting. I just got 2 petricola about a week ago and want some more info.

I can tell you that they like to be in big groups of more than four. I have seven. They can also thrive on a mostly vegetable diet which is why folks will keep them in tanks with tropheus. They are a Rift Lake cichlid so they like a high pH and can tolerate cichlid tankmates with great ease. They stay in the 4" range for life. They take a while to mature years, like three to four. They are egg scatterers, not cuckoo spawners unlike S. multipunctatus.
Is there anything else? Several of us here have them, and our experiences may be able to to help you answer some questions about yours.
