Pelmatochromis nigrofasciatus is a relatively peaceful species that exhibits well-developed levels of sexual dimorphism and dichromatism (coloration). Males possess a more elongate body-shape, elongated dorsal and anal fins, and exhibit a more pronounced pattern of reddish spots on the dorsal, anal, and caudal fins; while females possess a more oval body-shape and less elongated dorsal and anal fins. Both sexes exhibit iridescence on the centers of the body scales and an ocellated so-called "Pelmatochromis-spot" on the dorsum and lower dorsal fin. Importations of P. nigrofasciatus to the U.S. in recent years have included contaminat juvinile Tilapia thollani. In this writer's experience, P. nigrofasciatus exhibits magnificent coloration when housed in soft water: truly a sight to behold! â€"Randall Kohn
