Pelvicachromis humilis.

I recently picked up a lovely wild pair of P.humilis, they settled surprisingly well and soon paired up (Different behaviour than my first attempts in 2009 where my pairs killed each other within days!)

Within a month i had my first spawn and at the time of typing they are just shy of 7 weeks old.

A very bice fish indeed. Which location are they.
I tried them about 15 years ago and as you said found them very violent. Well done.

I love my Petrochromis contrary to popular belief they are quite easy to keep.

I tried them a while ago too and ended up with a single male! Maybe you have a different population.
How large was the tank they spawned in?
