Pelvicachromis humilis "Liberia Red"

Our current import from Guinea contains five different species/morphs of the relationship of Pelvicachromis humilis. They all have in common that the males can reach a maximum length of 12 cm. Females always stay smaller. The latter are the more colorful animals; there is always a clearly marked sexual dichromatism. During mating and displaying the colors change drastically: the fish seem to glow from inside in these situations.
 
Pelvicachromis humilis "Liberia Red" was collected, as can been seen from the name, in the border region between Liberia and Guinea. All our fish were offered under the respective names from Guinea. The fish known in the hobby in the 1990’s under the name Pelvicachromis humilis "Liberia Red" seems to represent another, different variety/species. In males of our current import there is a red pattern in the caudal fin. The remaining coloration differs a lot, depending on the mood. The bright shining zone on the belly of the female, which is present in all forms of the P.-humilis-relationship, is expressed very intensively in Pelvicachromis humilis "Liberia Red".
 
For our customers: the fish have code 559554 on our stock list. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
 
According to the IUCN Red List of Endangered fish C. humilis is categorized as least concern although their impacted from deforestation, human settlement and mining in Liberia.
