保育: Petrochromis sp. 'red' 未被国际自然保护联盟（IUCN）在濒危物种红色名录中为自然保育进行评估. This undescribed species is not evaluated, but its restricted range and low population density make it vulnerable. That's why imports for the aquarium trade must remain reasonably low and provide mainly experienced breeders, which may in turn favor its spreading in the hobby.
