10 pcs pseudotropheus saulosi -. Pure species basin (desired 3M / 7W)

Pseudotropheus saulosi lives in sediment-free rocky habitat and preferred because the upper areas of strong flow around rocky reefs.
This species lives absolutely endemic at Taiwan Reef northeast of Chizumulu Iceland.
P. saulosi lives mainly in 5-15 meters deep, but was observed even up to 20 meters.

The type described belongs to the limnivoren cichlids of Lake Malawi.
It feeds from the nursery, respectively. diatoms (diatoms) and micro-organisms which they picked from the nursery out. Females and non-territorial males are busy almost all day looking for food.

Females (golden yellow) and area-less juvenile males form large schools (50 and more animals) and pull steadily through the rock habitat, always in search of food.
Territorial bucks (bright blue colored and have 6 dark blue to black stripes. On their
Anal fin is a large Eifleck) defend their relatively large areas (ø up to 2 meters) up on the rocks aggressive towards conspecifics and try pairing willing females there to lure.

Mating takes always place directly on the corresponding rocks. The bucks are constantly balzaktiv and only tolerate estrous females in their territory, all the others are distributed consistently.
Very interesting is that older females may take the colors of males when no blocks are available in the area.

(I wonder Synodontis possibly with use, your opinion counts)
