The Elongatus species can be found grazing on plant matter in the intermediate zone of Lake Malawi. These Cichlids are not overly aggressive and would make a great choice for most African Cichlid Tanks.

The Elongatus Chailosi are members of the Metriaclima genus, though they can be classified in the Pseudotropheus as well. If you want to avoid agression, keeping them with fish of a different appearance will be helpful as they are mainly aggressive towards males that look similar to them.
