Placidochromis milomo (Super VC10)
Body shape similar to other Placidochromis, but this species is very distinctive because of its very large lips. In the wild these lips allow more suction, so the fish can pull away algae and small animals more easily from the rocks that occur in the environment where it lives. Females and juveniles are silvery-brown with dark brown vertical bands. Sexually mature males are bluish with red markings on their unpaired fins.
Sometimes known as Cyrtocara milomo.
Fish information (behaviour and breeding):
A very striking species for the large Malawi community. Like other haplochromines this species is essentially easy-going outside of breeding. Because of this mixing it with mbuna is a bad idea because those fish tend to be more overtly aggressive. On the other hand like other Placidochromis this species will work well with other haplochromines as well as things like Labidochromis and Iodotropheus.
Wild fish are essentially solitary and males are only mildly territorial towards one another. Breeding similar to other haplochromines, the species being a polygamous mouthbrooder with the females looking after the eggs and fry.
