Cameroon has a lot of weird lakes like that, I gather. Some of the
fishes living in them are so specialized for life in those hellish
conditions that they can't be kept in normal aquaria, which is a shame,
too, since some of them are pretty kewl, like the Blood Cichlid. It's
not relevant to this, but I thought I'd mention it for the few who
didn't already know that.
