    Nice pics! I haven't come across Metriaclima sp. "Mbweca" before - were they hard to get hold of?

    They been available at a local LFS a couple times (formerly Cynotilipia sp. "Mbweca"). I got a dozen of them from a breeder in Cincinnati.

    Kevin, what's their temperament like? And do you ever sell juvies locally?

    They're in my 180 gallon tank. They breed and spit in the tank. It's way too much work to remove all those rocks. I bought 15 so if I thin the herd some day I'll let you know, Mark.

    Not really all that aggressive at all. But of course male Mbwecas chase other male Mbwecas.

    Keep me in mind if you decide to get rid of a group as I really like them. Thanks for the info Kevin.
