Pseudotropheus saulosi

Pseudotropheus saulosi is a colourful, hardy mbuna ideally suited to the Malawi community tank.

Sexual dimorphism is strong, at least with mature fish. Mature males have dark blue vertical bands on a light blue body. Females and immature males are solid yellow-orange with vague brownish vertical bands on the flanks and a scattering of blue spots on the face and flanks.


Fish information (behaviour and breeding):

A typical mbuna in terms of care. Needs an aquarium with lots of space, because these fish are extremely territorial and very aggressive. A dominant male will kill any other males kept with him if the tank is too small (less than 240 litres). Males are best kept singly with multiple females.

This species is herbivorous, and its diet must be mainly made up of algae and other green foods. Use meaty foods, such as bloodworms and brine shrimp, only occasionally.

Breeding is as for other members of the mbuna group. Females incubate relatively small clutches of eggs in their mouths. The male plays no part in broodcare.
