Maylandia barlowi, photographed
underwater at Maleri Island, Malawi. This is the species previously
known informally as Pseudotropheus "zebra fusco."
Maylandia barlowi is unusual, but not unique, among Malawi cichlids
in having yellow or "golden" males; another species with this characteristic is its
relative Maylandia lombardoi.
