    I have heard and seen them and would like to keep some at some stage but due to there threaten status (Tilapia guinasana). I don't think i will ever see them in my tank.

    These guys are only, to my knowledge, found in two sinkhole systems in Namibia. Besides limited distribution, they're also threatened by nearby developments... sad thing for such a pretty fish.

    Very, very unlikely to make it to the aquarium trade, but I rate it is for the best.
