Breeding males are characterized by a bright blue color with a reddish patch behind the gill plate. The anal fin is dark with an orange edge & has light-colored streaks. P. similis is often found in Vallisneria beds where it feeds on these plants by biting out pieces of the leaves with the aid of its very sharp & closely packed teeth. Males build cone bowers in the middle of these plant beds, where they have cleared room.
