Above: Otopharynx speciosus, a male freshly trawled from the southeast arm. This is one of the largest of the "3-spot" haplochromines, and has a distinctive combination of spot shape and placement combined with only a few vertical bars. This species has rarely been exported as an aquarium fish. Below is an image of a female. Both photos copyright © by M. K. Oliver.
