PROTOMELAS SP. STEVENI

One of the most sought after and popular fish in the hobby for African Cichlid keepers and for a good reason. This fish shows electric blue coloring around the head and in parts across the body and fins with a yellow mid-section and underside.  They are very easy to care for as long as you keep up with aquarium maintenance.  Males are larger and much more colorful as adults, juvenile fish are difficult to sex.
