Found somewhere in southeastern Nigeria, the exact collection points of Pelvicachromis sacrimontis are unknown. Originally thought to be a variant of Pelvicachromis pulcher, P. sacrimontis is its own species. Reaching 4 inches in length, this species is commonly called “giant krib”.

Pelvicachromis sacrimontis are best kept in pairs. Both males and females can be aggressive, especially when breeding. Spawning takes place in a cave. Both parents will look after the young fry once hatched. A diet of quality flakes is good, but live foods are preferred.
