A fairly peaceful mbuna.

Written on 13-08-2018 05:18 by cab

I bought a male and a female in Planteimporten in the spring of 2002. It was 2 juvenile "Perlmutts", but almost grown and they spawned shortly after my purchase. It was a batch of 7 fry (actually more, but the rest was eaten by tank mates).

During a re-prioritization of my tank space, I sold my remaining 4 Perlmutts.
