Product Description

Pseudotropheus estherae ‘Red Zebra’ is a mbuna cichlid from Lake Malawi in eastern Africa. This fish is also known as Metriclima estherae and Maylandia estherae. The nomenclature of Pseudotropheus seems to be in a state of permanent uproar. The top photo is a mature male. The bottom photo is a mature female. Our strain is from a commercial source. We acquired the strain in 2003. Males often reach 12.5cm (5 in.). Females are somewhat smaller. Mature males are orange and often sport a sheen of pale blue on the flanks. Females are orange. Juveniles have the adult female coloration. This fish hails from Lake Malawi in eastern Africa.
