|Located around Likoma and Chizumulu Island and along the eastern coastline between Makonde and Manda. Found in the intermediate habitat. Diet in the wild consists mainly of plankton.
The aquarium should have some rockwork but still provide open swimming space both along the bottom and mid-tank region. Feed a quality cichlid flake/pellet food, supplement occasionally with frozen brine, krill and mysis.
In the wild, females and young males will often school in large numbers in the open water.
