Name: Pseudotropheus sp. "polit"
Location: Near Lions Cove (Malawi) in Lake Malawi
Adult size: 3 1/2 inches (9 cm)
Personal notes: I purchased a colony of 2 male and 8 female Pseudotropheus sp. "polit" in May of 2013 from the local aquarium store. Initially I'm raising this species in a 40 gallon long tank. The male on male polit aggression is fairly extreme. This is a feisty, energetic species. They have bred easily and often for me.
