Parananochromis axelrodi is named after Dr. Herbert Axelrod "in recognition of his generous support of ichthyological research and exploration" (Lamboj & Stiassny, 2003). This central African cichlid is known only from the nine specimens used to scientifically describe the species and is not in the hobby.
P. axelrodi can be distinguished from the other species of the genus by a series of morphological characteristics inclusive of a deep body and deep caudal peduncle. In both sexes, the first pelvic fin ray is the longest but is more pronounced in males, the base coloration is pale bronze-brown, and the caudal, soft dorsal, and anal fins are marked with rows of dark spots. P. axelrodi is endemic to Gabon where it is found in small blackwater steams and creeks. This species is not in the hobby and has not been bred in aquaria. â€"Randall Kohn
