Pelvicachromis signatus was known in the hobby as P. sp. "Guinea/Bandi/Bandi I" and is named after the Latin for "wearing markings" or "marked," referring to the black markings on the male's dorsal fin and the black blotch on the female's caudal fin. Males possess some extended caudal rays in the upper lobe and black spots on the dorsal fin, while females exhibit a black blotch on the dorsal fin, as well as on the caudal fin base. Like P. humilis, both sexes exhibit eight variable dark vertical bars on the body. Although information concerning husbandry is somewhat limited, P. signatus has been reported as an aggressive species. In aquaria, its somewhat larger size and temperment should be considered.
P. signatus is a pair-bonding cave spawner, as is typical for the genus. Females usually guard the eggs and larvae, while both parents guard the free-swimming fry. -Randall Kohn
