OK, www.cichlidpress.com has a wallpaper of a cichlid that they have labeled as troduboisi.jpg. I'm assuming that troduboisi= Tropheus Dubiosi. The deal is that the pictured cichlid looks very black except for a small amount of dark blue around its mouth with very white spots. I know that discription is sort of close to that of a juvenile tropheus duboisi, but its still not the same. I'm sort of new to cichlids, so does any one have any idea what that fish is?? Please e-mail me if you do: nprusse@uark.edu Thanks

That is the juvenile form of Tropheus dubiosi. It's all through Ad Konings book 'Tanganyika Cichlids in their natural habitat' and he's associated with that website, as well. Excellent book, by the way, if you ever want a tang book. The adult form of T. dubiosi is very different. It's black with a yellow stripe down the middle.
