Friedrick just arrived from a famous fish farm. He is Labeotropheus fuelleborni. Friedrick Fuelleborn was a German/Polish medical doctor, who lived in East Africa in the early part of the 20th century. The Fuelleborni species was named after his last name, and Friedrick was named after his first name. Most Fuelleborni males are blue with some orange markings, but Friedrick is mottled with spots. Sometimes this sort of male is called a Marmalade Cat. Tom already loves him a lot.
Above: A New Fish Named Marakeli
Marakeli is a mature male Paratilapia polleni. His ancestors lived in northern Madagascar, a large island near the east coast of Africa. Marakeli was born on a famous fish farm and now lives in Tom's basement.
Another New Fish, a Firefish Peacock
On Friday Nevin brought Tom over two new fish to photograph. The fish shown just above is a member of the genus Aulonocara, which is the scientific name of a group of fish from Lake Malawi. Aquarists sometimes call fish in this genus Peacocks or Malawi Peacocks. There are lots of different Peacocks in Lake Malawi. This kind is called a Firefish Peacock, and this particular Firefish is a mature male that was born and raised on a fish farm for someone's aquarium, like Tom's.
Yet another New Fish
A mature male Aulonocara jacobfreibergi. This is another Malawi Peacock species, which is often called a Lemon Jake by aquarists.
