Elongatus Chailosi (Metriaclima sp.)

Out of stock

Remarks: Elongatus Chailosi are members of the Metriaclima genus, though they can be considered to be Pseudotropheus as well. They may eventually be placed in the Chindongo genus because of their elongate body shape. Like all mbuna, they are typically only aggressive towards other males that look similar, so keeping them with fish of a different appearance will avoid most aggression issues.
