Cichlids of the genus Tropheus have fascinated aquarists since they were first exported from Lake Tanganyika in the late 1950s. It may have been their "unconventional" shape, or the fact that females brood their offspring to a relatively large size inside their mouths, that initially appealed to hobbyists. They are still some of the most popular cichlids kept in aquaria.

Over the years much has been said about their incredible diversity of colouration, with almost any new area collected in the Lake resulting in new variants, and the emphasis in the aquarium literature has almost always been on the number of variants, morphs, or species that exist in the lake.

Behaviourists have, however, discovered that Tropheus species exhibit unique breeding behaviour not recorded from any other group of cichlids. Their behaviour in the wild is ruled by ecological factors that cannot realistically be duplicated in the aquarium, and for this reason these fish behave rather differently in captivity.

The information in Tropheus in their Natural Habitat is based on observations in the wild and almost all photographs were taken in the lake and show the fishes in their natural habitat.

Contents: Introduction, Lake Tanganyika, Maps, The Genus, The Species, Geographical Variation, Territory, Feeding, Breeding, Classification, In the Aquarium, References, Index.
