Yellow Acei or Daktari - Pseudotropheus sp. "Daktari"

Fish in the genus Pseudotropheus are some of the most aggressive of all fish from Lake Malawi.  Probably second most aggressive only to the Melanochromis genus. Take care to put plenty of hiding spaces in your aquarium to help curb their aggression.  Plenty of rocks and  plastic plants help in this regard, but take care not to use real large pieces of driftwood as they help to lower pH.

The great news is that the Grand Rapids metro tap water (and most surrounding wells) is the perfect pH for these beautiful fish!
