Name: Prognathochromis Perrieri (Pellegrin 1909)
Common name: Haplochromis Perrieri
Location: Lake Victoria (on the shores of Uganda)
Adult size: males: 5 inches 12 cm, females 4 1/2" 10 cm
Personal notes: I was able to obtain a colony of 13 (6M:7F) young adult Prognathochromis Perrieri in the summer of 2014. I was keeping them in a single species 55 gallon tank but as the numbers have dwindled, I moved them to a 40 gallon long tank.. They breed frequently and are not at all aggressive.
The pictures below show the perrieri at a younger age.
Above is the dominant male around 1 year old and 2 1/2 inches (7 cm) total length.
Above is a female around 1 year old and 2 1/2 inches (6 cm) total length.
