Default Frontosa - Mpimbwe vs Karema

Frontosa - Mpimbwe vs Karema. I have heard they are very close to the same thing. Anyone notice any significant differences between the two?

The short answer is it depends who you talk to-- and both when and exactly where theirs were collected. Through some connections I used to have (that I haven't maintained in recent years) I've heard of the occasional really exceptional imports of mpimbwe for which the collector/exporter wouldn't give out details.

My understanding has long been that mpimbwe haven't been/aren't always collected in the same spot-- link

Thanks - I wanted to order wild caught of one or the other. Supplier said they were quite similar. I went with Mpimbwes in the end as they were a little bigger (breeding) and I figured if I wanted a few more it might be easier to find mpimbwes down the road.
