Lake Victoria Haplochromine Cichlids - by Greg Steeves
Long time cichlid enthusiast Greg Steeves is perhaps best known for his writings on the haplochromine species of Africa. His interest in aquatics began early, living on the east coast of Canada along the Atlantic Ocean. His attention to Lake Victoria began in the early 90’s when Idi Amin was terrorizing the citizens of Uganda. At this time he fell into a collection of cichlids from Lake Victoria thus finding a focal point in aquatics.
In 2002 Greg moved to Texas where he resides with his wife Lee Ann, and children Karli, Stuart and Erin. He maintains a small breeding operation focused on haplochromine cichlids. Fish produced in his breeding room can be seen at public aquariums and hobbyists fish rooms around the world. He has written many articles on a variety of topics generally centered on the fauna of Lake Victoria. He has initiated the LVP (Lake Victoria Project) in his home club (www.hillcountrycichlidclub.com), and is Lake Victoria species coordinator in the CARES program. Greg is a fellow and contributor to the Cichlid Room Companion.Read More
