Hey, I'm looking into some new fish to get and I really like the looks of altolamprologus compressiceps but I can't find a common name for it. If anyone knows its common name it would be helpful.
True, but some of us don't know fish by those names including me.Latin names are much more accurate because only one animal can have it. Common names are frequently given to more than one creature depending on where you are in the world. Much better to know the full Latin name and then you can be sure of the fish you're asking for
Exotic means more $$$ to me, so that may be why.
