Pelvicachromis taeniatus Nigeria Yellow

18. April 2011

This is another, extreme beautiful variety of that gorgeous dwarf cichlid from Western Africa: Pelvicachromis taeniatus “Nigeria Yellow”. Initially the animal originates from the surroundings of the Nigerian city of Lagos, but we have in stock fully grown adult bred ones. The bright golden breast and the very long finnage make Pelvicachromis taeniatus “Nigeria Yellow” real eye catchers.

For our customers: the fish have code 562314 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.

Lexicon: Pelvicachromis: Latin, means about “Chromis with a specially coloured pelvis”; Chromis is an old catch-all name for perches. taeniatus: Latin, means “striped”.

Common name: makes no sense, the fish is commonly known by enthusiasts as the “taeniatus Nigeria yellow”.
