Name: Metriaclima sp. "elongatus Chewere"
Synonym: Pseudotropheus elongatus "Chewere"
Location: Chewere Reef, Lake Malawi
Adult size: male: 4 inches (10 cm), female: 3.5 inches (8 cm)
Personal notes: I purchased these as young adult mbuna at the Columbus Area Fish clubs spring 2012 auction. I placed the colony in my 180 gallon tank. They breed frequently but I don't try to collect the fry. In a tank this large I find them to be only moderately aggressive, although the sub-dominant male doesn't show good color due to the harrassment.
