Comments:
Pulpican is a dwarf Mbuna with only one "bad" habit: digging. It will rearrange the tank to its own needs and pleasing, no matter what you do. Males are light blue with five vertical, dark blue bars, but when he is angry the lower part of his body might turn black. The females are silver-grey like juveniles.
