Comments:
Males have a similar coloratoin as Ps. Polit. A bright blue body with a black belly and head. On the head are two light bleu stripes. The dorsal fin is black with a blue base and a blue edge. Females are brown/yellow. When the males feel threatened they can, like the polit males, change their color to a dull grey/blue instantly.
