A male Pseudotropheus "aggressive yellow fin" photographed
at Mkanila Bay, Chisumulu (Chizumulu) Island. This beautiful
Pseudotropheus "aggressive" species, seemingly confined to Chisumulu,
is reported to occur there only among rocks of small to medium size in
less than 6 m depth, always remaining close to the rocks
(Ribbink et al., 1983).
Most males have algal "gardens." Unlike a majority of the other
"aggressives," however, in this species the females seem to be
nonterritorial according to Ribbink and colleagues.
