Remarks: Pundamilia nyererei "Makobe Island" is a species of Haplochromine from Lake Victoria, around Makobe Island . Males have a red upper half and yellow-green lower half, covered with black bars throughout. Females are mostly gray with some yellow in the fins. This locality is known to have the reddest coloration of all the different localities when mature. It is best to keep Pundamilia nyererei males with other male cichlids (Peacocks, Haplochromines, or mbuna), or in a harem setup with several females. Caves should be provided for fish to seek refuge in when threatened by dominant males. Females will hold mouthbrood spawns of 10-50 eggs.
