Paratilapia polleni or black diamond cichlid.

I am in the process of setting up an 80 gal. tank and am considering putting one specimen from the cichlid family. My question is how difficult are The paratilapia polleni to find in the aquarium trade? am also wondering the same for Buttikoferi. Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.

Buttis are very easy to find, they get called the Buttkicker for there aggression


Polleni are not seen very often around where I am, I can only think of one time that I have seen them in a LFS, thats not to say you could not order them easy from a good shop.

Make it idiot-proof and someone will make a better idiot.

Not true. I have Tilapia mareii and they are about as docile a cichlid as you can find. They do tear up a planted tank though.
