Pulcher is Latin for the word beautiful and it is an appropriate name for them. Originally this fish was called Pelvicachromis kribensis hence its other nickname the kribensis cichlid but was later changed to the current species name pulcher. Kribs will accept a broad range of aquarium cichlid foods including flakes, pellets and freeze dried prepared foods. Their found in acidic to neutral waters in southern Nigeria and coastal areas of Cameroon.
 
P. pulcher are easily recognizable by their pinkish to red stomachs which becomes intense during spawning. They also have a distinct eye spots or ocelli located on both the dorsal and anal fins. These spots are outlined in gold. Kribensis cichlids are found with many color types or morph which is probably due to different regions of where they originate from. There are albino kribensis for sale in the hobby and this is due to selective breeding efforts which have allowed them to be developed for the aquarium trade. This is a great cichlid to work with and can be housed in a 30 gallon tank pretty comfortably with other small cichlids.
