Starry Night Cichlid, Paratilapia polleni

This amazingly colored fish is found in just one river on one island on our entire planet!  The Starry Night Cichlid is endemic to the Ambasoana River on the Northern tip of Madagascar.  Aside from this tiny speck of area on an island in the Indian Ocean, they are found nowhere else in the world.  This precious creature is listed as vulnerable because its population is decreasing.  Locals catch and eat the fish and they are also collected and sold to the aquarium trade.  I created this painting in partnership with Shoal Conservation to help their Endemic Fishes of Madagascar Project.
