Not sure what you mean by "popular". If you mean most commonly seen/available, it is reputedly A. latifasciata, yet they are the one species on your list that hasn't shown up in my local club this last year. If you are looking for a personal favorite, then I'd have to say P. chromogynos...males are even more beautiful than a photo can do justice, and the females are pretty good looking too.

Based solely on personal opinion:

Pundamilia nyererei => most colorful and most aggressive of these 5
Paralabidochromis chromogynos => Highest demand and hardest to breed of these 5
Astatotilapia latifasciata => most commonly available and commonly kept
Haplochromis sp. “Kyoga flamebackâ€Â

Out of that list my choice would be the chromogynos. I have to disagree with Kevin on this one, the chromogynos have to be one of the most aggressive species i have kept. The juvies are relentless even with dither mbuna.

They are one of my favorites overall though. My other choice would be the neochromis omnicaerulous makobe, gorgeous fish.
