Personal notes:  I purchased 16 little juveniles in August of 2011 from a hobbyist in the St Louis area.  The identification seems to be somewhat controversial.  Some people feel that this is previously unknown and unclassified cichlid that should be called by a generic name Haplochromis sp. "Boyanga".
