Until a couple days ago I had never heard of Pseudocrenilabrus philander. The genus Pseudocrenilabrus is small and not very common in the hobby. A real shame since Pseudocrenilabrus nicholsi and Pseudocrenilabrus multicolor victoriae are beautiful fish.

The different subspecies of Pseudocrenilabrus philander are widely distributed throughout Central and Southern Africa. Currently only 3 subspecies have been identified, P. p. philander, P. p. dispersus and P. p. luebberti. There may be up to a dozen separate populations throughout Africa. The picture above is supposed to be from Guma Lagoon in Botswana. To discuss Pseudocrenilabrus philander, visit the Lake Victoria Basin, West African, Madagascar & Asian Species forum.
