It may seem strange to name an obviously distinctive red-banded black fish the Blunthead Cichlid, but there are some 40 very different morphs of both colour and pattern of this species throughout its native Lake Tanganyika in East Africa. The morphs are broadly regional and females select males/male territories usually that are a similar colour/pattern morph as themselves. This morph is sometimes known as the Red Bemba.
