New genus for African cichlid "labrosus"
 
1 Attachment(s)
Those aquarists who maintain rift lake cichlids may like to know that Melanachromis labrosus, a popular species of rift lake cichlid endemic to Lake Malawi in East Africa (pictured below) has been re-named Abactrochromis labrosus. It may be of interest to other aquarists too. The linked article outlines why ichthyologists have erected the new genus for this one species.
