HEMICHROMIS BIMACULATUS (Jewel Cichlid)

Sometimes, when you lose a fish it is like losing a friend. This is the bottom line of a beautiful relationship with a beautiful fish. We acquired it as an adult fish and we admired its unique coloration (blue fluorescent spots on a red/brown body), its aggression and the strong personality of the first African to enter our tank. What an irony! When our 1.300 liter tank was built we decided that, though not a Lake Malawi cichlid (actually it comes from Zaire rivers) we would keep it. It didn't make it. It died one day before it was scheduled to be transferred to its new home from (here is the irony) Malawi bloat. Not a Malawi itself it died like one. A selection of my wife and her favorite fish. We didn't have the courage to buy a new one.
