Hello all. Trying to hunt down in the US some nice group of labeotropheus trewavasae - red top ( Thumbi West or Chinyamwezi, or any other local with nice deep/solid Orange dorsal fin and nice solid blue body- OB variation welcome as well).
Here are a few great examples:

I had a group with blue males. As they started to breed, they were throwing ob males which is not unheard of, but rare. I don't have them anymore, but will talk with the guy that bought them to see if he still has them.
