Name: Haplochromis sp. "all red" Lake Edward
Common name: Lake Edward Allred
Location: Lake Edward
Adult male size: 6 inches (16 cm)
Personal notes: I bought a pair of full grown Hap all reds at the Cincinnati Club auction in 1999. The male was already 6 inches (16 cm) long and the female was around 5 inches (13 cm) lomg. I placed them in a 75 gallon tank with some rather aggressive mbuna. This was not a good mix, as the All Reds were a much more peaceful cichlid and not quite up to the task of living with this much harrassment despite their size advantage.
Above is the large male AllRed I purchased in 1999.
The very old all red female above wasn't much to look at.
