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.
