Lichnochromis acuticeps

Lichnochromis accuticeps, adult male (top photo), carrying female (middle) and adult wild-caught sample. Photos submitted by Fabio Callegari.

Top photo: An adult Lichnochroms acuticeps male as shown in the aquarium of the Belgian hobbyist Jean - Pierre. Some fry of this Malawi hap were purchased during AFC 2004 and brought to Athens for my good friend, Nikos Tsitouras. While they were kept on their own 100 liter tank till Nikos had some free space to take them, one of them jumped into the next tank which was the home of 7 semi-adult Paretroplus menarambo. Although the L. acuticeps was less than half their size it faced no problems at all. The Pe menarambo were too busy chasing each other to pay any attention to this intruder ! The little guys were already transferred (December 2004) in the huge Malawi tank of Nikos (300 X 65 X 70 = 1.365 liters / 360 gallons). Photos by G.J.Reclos /MCH.

The fish shown in this set of pictures is a male, aged almost 1 year (total size 16 cm). The adult coloration of the male is visible. This is one of the fishes purchased in the AFC 2004 auction. Click on the thumbnails to see the high resolution pictures. Photos by G.J.Reclos /MCH (August 2005)
