#4955 Moliwe River, Cameroon, West Africa

Sponsored by

Cameroon, Bonadikombo, Dipartimento di Fako

I learned about the threat to the Moliwe River some time ago. So I decided to build this replica and also to breed some of its fish. In the meanwhile I was able to breed some 100 Pelvicachromis kribensis var. Moliwe offspring and give them in good hands.

Now I own 6 pairs in my kennel. Unfortunately, it is very difficult to get accurate information about this river. The Övvö website and some private contacts helped me to create a picture of this river.
A few months ago I even managed to get 14 offspring of the Epiplatys rathkei var. Moliwe.
