A gorgeous rock dwelling cichlid is practically extinct in the wild. This is due to unscrupulous tropical fish collectors because of the cichlids amazing colors of iridescence and striking patterns, and them being endemic to one lake. Not much is known about this cichlid due to it being endemic to Lake Malawi, meaning they are only found in this particular lake. There are a total of 12 genera of very active and aggressive personalities in this group. Regardless of the drastically different personalities in a group, a single group won't swim much more than about 3 feet away from the particular rock island they have designated as their home.
