Pundamilia nyererei “Makobe Island” is one of the many variants of P. nyererei found throughout the lake. The different variants, found in different locations, each have their own color patterns. The Makobe Island variants have bright red on their backs with yellows and blacks on the rest of their body. Arguable, P. nyererei “Makobe Island” is one of the most attractive of all the variants. Like other P. nyererei, those found around Makobe Island are extremely aggressive and tankmates need to be chosen wisely. The different variants should never be kept together since crossbreeding will occur. For more information on keeping and breeding Pundamilia nyererei “Makobe Island” check out the new article in the library. Discussion can be done in the Lake Victoria Basin forum.
