Haplochromis "Astatotilapia" nubila feeds on aquatic insect larvae and crustaceans in the wild. Males are territorial and somewhat aggressive. Broods often number as many as 40. H. nubila is found in 8 lakes and their connecting rivers and streams. Some have postulated that A. nubilus could possibly be the predecessor to most of the Victorian species flock.

You will note that we have indicated the genus Astatotilapia as a subgenus in quotation marks until a re-evaluation of Humphrey Greenwoods classifications is completed.
