Ignore the breeding efforts that should be put in the forefront of keeping this species, chiefly here because poor genetic diversity in the group I'm eyeing, for this discussion.

Since getting multiple species from Lake Barombi Mbo is very unlikely, what species would you consider in a community of Cameroonian species that caters to the temperament and requirements of pindu cichlids?

I should mention the species above. (not my pic)Procatopus simillis
I was never able to find it, but I would assume it would be a fabulous dither fish, in a large enough tank (not to get cornered) and if too big for the pindu to eat.
And have lately noticed them sometimes available at WetSpot
My pindu wer able to reach 7-8", so were quite gluttonous, and amazingly fast.
