Pundamilia pundamilia (Seehausen & Bouton, 1998) is the most widely distributed species of the genus Pundamilia. It lives sympatrically with many other pundamilia species in Lake Victoria. The Pundamilia sp. â€œHippo Point blue barâ€ may represent a Kenyan variant of this species. The P. pundamilia is found only in rocky areas. It lives in big crevices in shallower water in a reef. It has been found from 1 m to 2 meters deep at the moderately to steeply sloping shore, with medium to large rock boulders. Some rare individuals have been observed in the wave exposed rocks or over sandy substrates, but this fish is mostly a cryptically species. It feeds on benthic insect larvae, zooplankton and some blue green algae as well. Males are intolerant toward conspecifics males and due to its aggressiveness, a 55 gallon tank is a recommended minimum size. Pundamilia pundamilia exhibits some morphological differences at various locations so it is important not to mix any of these variants in the same tank.
