Pseudotropheus sp. "acei" (also known as yellow-tail acei) is a Mbuna cichlid from Lake Malawi that grows to around in length. Although known for many years, it has not been formally described. There are two different varieties: The most common yellow-tailed "Pseudotropheus sp. "acei"" (Msuli), and the white-tailed "Pseudotropheus sp. "acei"" (Ngara). Like most Mbuna, it dwells in shallower waters, however it will sometimes go near the surface, which is very uncommon for Mbunas. It is a very common fish for fish-keepers.
