Astatoreochromis alluaudi is more common than you would think. This fish was taken from Lake Victoria and reintroduced into many bodies of water surrounding the lake to take care of the snail problems that cause disease. Though this fish helped with some snails it fed mostly on insects rather than much of the snails. Astatoreochromis alluaudi is rare in the North America but is spreading thanks to Kevin getting them in from Germany. I have 22 of these and they are just reaching breeding age now. *crossing fingers*
