Pseudotropheus acei 'yellow tail' (Acei Cichlid)
Pseudotropheus acei is a variable species with numerous geographical variants known. In the wild this fish has a specialist niche, feeding on algae and other micro-organisms that encrust wood that has fallen into the water.
Sexual dimorphism is not strong. Typically, the male has a two-tone dorsal fin: the spiny part at the front is one colour, usually blue, and the soft part at the back is another colour, usually yellow. On females, the dorsal fin is entirely one colour, usually yellow.
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.
