    Pelvicachromis sacrimontis is sometimes called Scarlet Kribensis. Different fish. Care is the same as kribs.

    Ok, but what are the differences in markings and colors and body shape etc. I have a source that is bringing in some wild-caught ones and I'm wondering if I should get some.

    Google it, you'll see for yourself. :)

    They're probably the "roundest" of the Pelvicachromis genus, and slightly smaller than kribs.

    Ok correct me if I'm wrong but, sacrimontis has a pink mouth? Would the average person know the difference between sacrimontis and pulcher?

    edit: sorry i think i got it wrong. the female seems to have a yellow mouth and purple belly like this?
