|Female Egyptian mouthbrooder|
The Egyptian mouthbrooder (Pseudocrenilabrus multicolor) is a species of cichlid. This small mouthbrooder reaches about 8 cm (3.1 in) in length, and is found in rivers, lakes, and other freshwater habitats in Eastern Africa from Egypt and as far south as Tanzania. The common name Egyptian mouthbrooder is often limited to its northern nominate subspecies, in which case the southern P. m. victoriae is called the dwarf Victoria mouthbrooder. The exact distribution limit between the two subspecies is unknown.
