Africa: endemic to the south eastern part of Lake Tanganyika (Ref. 46829, 93977).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Prefers shallow, rocky habitats; in the recesses of the rocky biotope (Ref. 7343, 46829). Normally found in the upper 10 m of this biotope (Ref. 46829). Feeds on invertebrates such as shrimps and other crustaceans (Ref. 46829), in the biocover or in the recesses of the substrate (Ref. 7343, 46829). Solitary (Ref. 46829). Substrate spawner; raises fry in seclusion (Ref. 7343).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01259 (0.00508 - 0.03119), b=3.03 (2.81 - 3.25), based on LWR estimates for this Subfamily-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.5   ±0.41 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Unknown.
