The most popular of all Madagascar cichlids. P. polleni has an outgoing personality, similar to the Oscar. There is still much to be discovered about this fish and its closely related kin. There are four other Paratilapia that have been informally described. It has been proposed that these fish are different species and not regional variants. P. polleni has large spots. It is an endangered species.
