Paratilapia sp. "Andapa"

New photo - November 2004

Three photos showing the typical resting position of the Paratilapia sp. "Andapa". The fish may stay on the substrate as shown in these pictures for long periods of time (showing a grouper - like behavior) but it is always alert for intruders in its territory. The specimens in those photos are the two largest males (about 20 cm TL). The largest male is shown in the second row and you can see some sand on his head, following serious excavations. In the last picture you can see the huge difference in size between the male and the female. This difference is even larger if one considers body mass instead of length. This is why the aquascape should offer a lot of suitable hiding spots for the female With this kind if size difference, it will not stand a chance if the male shows aggression. Mind you, this female is also the largest one. Click on the images to see a high resolution pictures. Photos by G.J.Reclos/MCH

New photo - October 2004

Photo of a magnificent male measuring 22 cm TL housed in a 360 liter tank (kept by my son, John). This particular fish was the largest among the 10 fish we got from Jean-Claude Nourissat in Vichy last year and has kept this place ever since. Click on the image to see a high resolution picture.
