Description

Rock Dwelling Mbuna .Gephyrochromis Acei. Pseudotropheus Acei

The Acei was originally classified as Pseudotropheus, but was later changed to Gephyrochromis and then back again. It prefers the sandy & rock filled shoreline where sunken logs are easily accessed. This species has developed the advantage of being able to harvest algae from submerged logs & roots. They are equipped with typical Gephyrochromid cuspid-like teeth that are flat for removing epixlyic or epilithic algae from wood. In the lake, schools of 30-50 individuals surrounding a large log are not uncommon, however in the rocky areas, schools usually consist of 3-10 individuals.
