Those pics are wonderful. I am in awe! I must have been a fantastic experience. What are some of the haps in this last set?



Stocky one is Chilotilapia rhoadesii.
There is Nimbochromis polystigma, Copadichromis "fire crest Yellow", Some type of Mylochromis and a Lethrinops "yellow Collar".

Great depth in the pics looking out over the rocky scape.

What is the fish in the second and third to last pics?

Thanks, don't think I've ever seen one.

Pic number 8 is great, I didn't notice the fish inside the first time. :)

Again very nice shots!
Good to see that 'torn' is the natural state of fins :wink:

Those rocks are huge. I love it keep them coming.

Where did you dive at to get these pictures?

you know, i did not keep a dive location log like i should have.
couple of the guys downloaded pix straight to PC after the day's dives, but i did not bring my computer.
I suppose i can check the dates and times of the pictures and match them with are dive days.
next year in Tanganyika ill keep better records.

I'm putting off the Tanganyika trip till August.

Diving is much better in August than May, which means nicer pix.
This allows people more time to get SCUBA certified and get dive practice in this summer.
Allows people to save more money, as many are broke after Christmas time, hopefully taxes won't screw you guys.

This also allows me more time to work on...
Burundi and Victoria combo (no diving in Victoria).
Malawi and Tanganyika combo.
Zambia and Tanzania combo.

Problem is if i do a combo it will be over 21 days.
Few people can do that, so most likely if i do that it will be solo.

Single location is about 7 days diving, and 1 day travel in Africa.
So roughly 11 days total with travel USA to Africa and back.

Next month, i'm going to be heading to South America to discover and photo new cichlid and pleco species.
