Pseudotropheus Demasoni 3-4cm

Availability: In stock



The Demasoni Cichlid, Pseudotropheus demasoni, is a relatively rare cichlid, which originates from a rocky point called Pombo Rocks, within the waters of Lake Malawi located in Tanzania, Africa. The male of this species has dark blue or black vertical stripes with alternating lighter stripes of light blue to white. The male Demasoni Cichlid also displays the typical spots on the anal fin, and is considerably larger than the female. The female of this species is not as brilliantly colored, and lacks the spots on the anal fin, but still a beautiful fish.

Definite thumbs up!
I ordered 3 of these little guys and all arrived healthy and brightly coloured. They have great little personalities and stand up for themselves against the other cichlids that are double their size. I will definitely purchased from you guys again in the future. Well done Livefish!

Definite thumbs up!
I ordered three of these little guys and they have fit in really well with my other cichlids. They are not afraid to stand up for themselves against some of the others that are almost double their size. They have such good character not shy at all. They arrived healthy and brightly coloured. I had no DOA so I was extremely happy! Thank you Livefish! I will definitely buy from you again in the future.

Lovely, lively little fish.
Arrived healthy and coloured up straight away. Settled in peacefully with other members of the tank. Quickly established their favourite rock hiding places and although small, started to show off to each other. Love em.

I purchased 15 of these from Livefish to add to 6 that I already have in my tank. They get really nasty as they grow, so it's a good idea to buy as many as you can fit in your tank if you are to purchase these fish. I will be looking to increase my colony of demasoni before they get much bigger. Very pretty little fish, and I already have 3 really dark males in my group of 21. I will definately be ordering more soon.

Great little fish
Ordered 10 of these, they all where delivered fast, seperate bags.
Look great in the tank and gain color very quick.

Unfortunatly one died after a few days for some unknown reason, I ordered 10 of the 3-4 cm demasonis, and got 2 @ 2cm.

Other than that, great communication and service, happy overall.

Good community Cichlid
I just had 2 of these delivered this week and they are really pretty. Very rich blue colour once they had settled down from the interstate trip and get on well with all my other cichlids, no aggression at all all so far. Thanks for the safe delivery of fish again Livefish!

Great fish
Got four of these 6 months ago from livefish, travelled well, took a few days to adjust to new tank, in with larger electric yellows, electric blues and peacocks. seem to hold there own. three of them have grown in size one still the same size and hides a lot. would recommend great addition to any cichlid tank

Little Bandits
These little guys are great. They all arrived alive and well in separate bags.
They are in a small 20l all in one tank about 50cm long. They lay in wait in the dence clump of Anubis in the center of the tank and come out to "Ambush" their food. Only other tankmates are a few Koolie loaches, who they mostly tolerate, only hassling them a bit at feeding time.
The bandits are mostly black and white ATM, but the larger of the 5 is starting to develop a tinge of blue. Highly recommend these fish for a species tank, they are a bit secretive though, but I do hope they breed !

Very Hardy and colourful
I have quite a few of these guys and they arrived good sized, great colouring and active. I keep them in a rather large show piece tank with a variety of other Cichlids, Guamis and sharks! Great community fish. Thanks again to livefish.

Breeding Already!
I submitted a review when i bought these fish less than 12 months ago but can't help add this news! I didn't expect them to breed so soon! Without any special treatment on my behalf i see i now have one new baby Demasoni :) I think i may have had more if they weren't in with somewhat larger cichlids. VERY impressed and happy with these active little fish!!

Wonderfull colouring and entertaining.
I purchased 4 of these guys 3 months ago. They were smallish but not far off the mark. I have 2 males and 2 females. They play all day and are great to watch. They come up for feeding and even take flakes out of my fingers. Very quick and dart around a lot. Very hardy fish. Can't wait to get more of these.

Great colour
I recieved 5 of these little babies 5 days ago and was a little concerned about their small size when putting in with larger cichlids, but this was wasted as they go wherever they please! Have great colour for such smallish (3cm) fish. Hopefully they aren't too aggressive when they grow up to be the same size as my others! Very entertaining.

Review by Cat
We bought two lots of these guys in two seperate orders. One when we first established our tank, and the other quite a few months later. Initially I was a little worried about having little guys in with 10-15cm cichlids, however they hold their own; are pretty daring and have GREAT colour. Over they'd definately have to be one of my fave cichlids!

Thumbs up
I already had 3 of these guys in a 4 foot (with about 80kg of rock) with some Melanochromis auratus so i figured some (10) more would look great. These guys were a little on the small side but they had good colour so it made up for it. Plus they gave me a brilliant male:female ratio
Just a warning to anyone else looking at getting them...They can be very VERY agro for their size. I wouldnt recomend putting them in with other cichlids unless you have tonnes and tonnes of hiding spots as they will shread your other fish when they get bigger. But great fish all round.

Small But Fearless
the fish i got it from livefish was only small around 3cm, and initially was very timid, but after two days of adjustment, it turns out this fish is fearless. He even chasing my fully mature/colour 15cm peacock. So, everyone, it seems ok to buy this small fish, he can look after himself
