Pelvicachromis taeniatus is a dwarf cichlid from West Africa that is occasionally kept as an aquarium fish. It hails from the soft-water rivers of West Africa as opposed to the East African rift lake cichlids such as the Mbuna. It is known to exist in a variety of geographically restricted varieties distinguished by differences in coloration. These are often given names such as "Nigerian red" or "Moliwe" that refer to the places where each variety is collected.
Location variants include:
P. taeniatus "Keinke"
P. taeniatus "Lokundje"
P. taeniatus "Moliwe"
P. taeniatus "Bipindi"
P. taeniatus species "Blue Fin"
