The Callochromis are difficult to photograph and really show their beauty, and they are not among the most commonly kept Tangs.

Also the pleurospilus are among the more aggressive Callochromis. I have stappersi which are supposed to be among the most beautiful and least aggressive. Still waiting for mine to mature.

Yeah getting photos to show their colour is impossible

I keep 1M and 4F in a 3x18x20 tank with Nigripinnis and the pleuro male has 3-5 pits and all females have held. I have two holding at the moment. In my experience they're not too aggressive but does get angry if a female doesn't want to breed lol

Yes, they are VERY hard to photograph. They are a fun fish to have in a tank - very active. Mine spawn regularily. For what it is worth, mine are Rasberry Ikola (few pics below of displaying males)...
