New African fish....picture added 3/6/05

I picked up a few new African river fish for my 'collection' recently. A gorgeous pair of Pelvicachromis sp.aff. pulcher (sacrimontis), a nice (small) African Leaf Fish - Polycentropsis abbreviata, and a gorgeous Synodontis flavitaeniatus - also called the Orange Striped Squeaker Catfish.

Pictures to come when they're available.

-Joe

Here's the first picture of the male Pelvicachromis sacrimontis (also known as Pelvicachromis sp.aff. pulcher). They're very similar in appearance to their much better-known cousin the 'kribensis' (Pelvicachromis pulcher) but in this species the red coloration extends all the way through the lower jaw on the males.

That looks like a kribensis to me.
