I just bought four butterkoferi and want to do more research on them but I can not find anything! What is their scientific name or are there any good sites that you know of?

It is actually a Tilapia buttikoferi. Just do a google search on it. These guys are intolerant, beligerant and just plain mean. I love them

Be prepared to give 3 of them back and get a pretty large tank. Must be 18 wide as they grow rather fast and get extremely aggressive. Even at a young age.

hi mark--i'd like to refer you to a story about my buttikofferi(sp) and my electric catfish(both now deceased). go to the lounge and click on the thread: "got a wild fish tale?"
