保育: Protomelas sp. 'spilonotus tanzania' 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In the past Protomelas sp. 'spilonotus tanzania' has been often collected for the ornamental fish trade but a good population has been established among breeders and further import from the wild seems unnecessary. In their natural habitat there seems to be little danger from overfishing as the species is only vulnerable to hook-and-line fishermen and there aren't many along the Tanzanian shore.
