Konings (2001): The Cichlids of Lake Malawi CD-ROM, this fish occurs at Undo Reef, Lundo Island, and Hongi Island. To my eye the Lundo Island and Hongi Island forms appear very similar, while the Undo Reef form is distinctly different in having a blue dorsal fin with black stripes extending into it from the body.

I have found this fish to be very prolific.


Male and two females or subdominant males.

Half-inch juveniles in the wake of a Pseudotropheus sp. "Polit" male.
