I have one! I bred them years ago. They were very prolific. I gave away the breeding pair eventually or I would have been overrun.
I picked up the solo chap at the BCA convention for £1 so I'm hoping to get some company for him asap.

Where do you live? Academy in St Leonards had some. Used to breed them myself. Lovely little fish. :-)

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

Hi, I've got 7 young adults + 1 large male.
I split them into pairs and yesterday one pair have produced about 20+ fry. :clap: : :clap:
The other pair nothing doing at moment, although the other 3 seem to be female so could swop round.
