• Protomelas sp. Steveni Pombo Rocks (Pombo Reef) (Yellow Chin)

New to CAS. Males are Light Blue with yellow on the lower chin and lower front of the body. A very rare male may show yellow on the head as well. Yellow also appears on the top of the dorsal fin. This fish appears to be slow to color. Rarely color before 4 inches. See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X4GazvxLiUI

These fish are a more peaceful haplochromine and are a nice alternative to Insignis. However, they are rarely available. They are now special order only fish. Price is based on the last wholesaler order price. 

This fish is slow to color

Best kept in single male tanks with milder peacocks and milder Lake Malawi Haplochromines. It is hard to beat the color of an all-male African Cichlid Tank.

The best mix of sex for breeding is one male with five or six females.
