Pelvicachromis taeniatus "Wouri" exhibits different coloration from the other populations in Cameroon, as well as those from Nigeria. Males exhibit a black distal (outermost) margin preceeded by a thinner white submargin on the lower half of the caudal fin (like the Nigerian populations) and a thin white distal margin preceded by a wider black submargin, that is preceded by yet another light-colored margin, on the upper half. The balance of the caudal fin exhibits a series of red and blue spots that form rows. Females exihibit a reddish belly, that is completely surrounded by a bluish region, and a large golden-yellow blotch approaching the dorsum. This remarkable coloration is unique among P. taeniatus. P. taeniatus 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. In the wild, their diet consists of small organisms, aufuchs, insect larvae, and algae. -Randall Kohn
