保育: Telmatochromis sp. 'dhonti yellow' 尚未被國際自然保育聯盟列入IUCN受威脅物種紅皮書名單中. Technically this information is unknown but since T. sp. 'dhonti yellow' has been observed at three different locations at a depth of 15 meters or more and always near a few rocks over a mostly open sandy bottom there is very little that would threaten such a small species. So, even if more data would have been available it would have been classified as Least Concern.
