保育: Tropheus moorii 由国际自然保护联盟（IUCN）在濒危物种红色名录中为自然保育而进行了评估 evaluated (LC) 无危（Least Concern） (2006). Tropheus moorii is an abundant species in the wild, but some varieties (such as the very popular "sunset" type from the Mpulungu surroundings) seems to show reduced size in imports, perhaps because of overfishing.
