I'm surprised how strong the fry are: about 27 fry with no loss in 2 months. Here is a picture of the dad. I only have one pair, but the male is not harassing the female as other Aulonocara do.

Are you sure of the ID, the pic looks more like victorian. Or this fish http://www.gcca.net/art-pics/cichlid-profiles-list/malawi-cichlids/26-astatotilapia-calliptera#.VKdReyvF_uM

I would say without a doubt that is not an aulonacara . I would also say the person who said astatotilapia calliptera is most likely right there is another species that looks similar but it is rare .

Yes, my bad... it is an astatotilapia calliptera.
