    Hi, I will be looking for contacts in Cape Town that one can get various tangs from. I'm looking for anyone with stock of Shellies (looking for ocellatus, brevis, multifacitus), Lelupi, eretmodus, Juliedochromis transcriptus and similar community fish. Happy to purchase once my tank is ready (should be early June), I'm patient and to build out slowly.

    If you're willing to travel a little, last time I checked a few days back Kenilworth had Neolamprologus brichardi, Cyphotilapia, Altolamprologus, and one or two varieties of Tropheus.

    Slowly collecting and getting it right - have two colonies of Tropheus - Red Rainbow WC (8) and Tropheus Bemba juveniles F1 (8) but growing more. RR are now holding...so maybe babies soon. Have some WC multifascitus ordered through various contacts (long story) directly from the lake - hopefully a colony of 10 to breed. If it all works out will keep you updated. Also awaiting news for possible WC eretmodus ...

    Here are my RR
