This attractive taxon made its way into the U.S. for the first time via Oliver Lucanus in 2004 and, subsequently, was first bred by American hobbyist David Midvidy who observed that, like other Pelvicachromis species, it is a pair-bonding, biparental cave-spawner. Although it bears a superficial resemblance to Pelvicachromis roloffi, female P. sp. "Blue Fin" exhibit a highly distinctive iridescent turquoise bar on the dorsal fin and do not possess rounded pelvic fins to the extent of females of the other Pelvicachromis species. For this reason, we refer to this exciting new form from the northern most geographical extreme of the chromidotilapiine lineage as 'Pelvicachromis' sp. "Blue Fin" until more information is known. Addendum: 'Pelvicachromis' sp. "Blue Fin" was described as Enigmatochromis lucanusi Lamboj, 2009. â€"Randall Kohn
