P. saulosi

By C. Moormann

Psuedotropeus saulosi.

The saulosi is a very popular Mbuna in the aquarium. It doesn't grow very large and both males and females possess amazing colors. They are both born yellow and only the males become blue when they get sexually mature. Carrying females can develop male coloration too, probably to look aggressive in order to scare off potential fry robbers or to claim a territory to safely release the fry. The females appear a kind of beautiful pinkish-orange. They resemble demasoni in appearance but not in temperment. They are quite mellow and more like an electric yellow in behavior but with the snakeline movements of the longer torso.

Here are a few of pictures of the p. saulosi I have:
