Pseudotropheus Elongatus is one of the more regal Malawian Cichlids available to aquarium hobbyists. Aside from its black and blue vertical banding, its long, slender body is its most distinctive attribute. This fish may uproot, eat, or destroy many fine-limbed plants, but should do OK with live plants such as those contained in the Rough Stuff Plant Plant Packages.
