Name:    Haplochromis sp. "all red"  Lake Edward


Common name:    Lake Edward Allred

Location:    Lake Edward

Adult male size:    6 inches (16 cm)

Diet:    plants


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.
