Lamprologus brevis Kapampa

7. October 2019

Many cichlids from Lake Tanganyika have different local populations that also look more or lress different. The snail cichlid Lamprologus brevis (sometimes also called Neolamprologus brevis, the species belongs neither to one nor to the other genus, but to a genus still to be described) has a lake wide distribution and therefore it has become common among cichlid lovers to indicate the location – in this case Kapampa at the western shore of the lake, quite far in the south of the DR Congo.

In L. brevis males and females live in the same snail. The females are clearly smaller and always swim into the house before the male. They have in the relation quite generally the trousers on, what they indicate through guidance-swimming and active courtship display.
