Linke & Staeck record Benitochromis riomuniensis from southwest Cameroon in the vicinity of the Lobe River system and the Campo Reserve, where the water is extremely soft and acidic (GH <1 dH, KH <1 dH, pH 4.8, & conductivity 10 μS/cm at 24° C). Anton Lamboj notes, however, that with the exception of B. batesii, in aquaria Benitochromis species may be successfully kept and bred in more moderate water values. Benitochromis species possess low levels of sexual dimorphism and dichromatism (coloration). Males, however, exhibit dark edges on the body scales (forming a "net" pattern), and more pronounced maculae on the soft parts of the dorsal, anal, and caudal fins; while females exhibit iridescent or metallic coloration on the dorsal and upper part of the caudal fin (see photos). With the exeption of B. batesii, which is larvophilic, Benitochromis species are pair-bonding ovophilic mouthbrooders, and usually both parents brood the eggs and fry. As unspecialized omnivores, their diet should consist primarily of the foods that they find in the wild: small organisms, aufuchs, small shrimps, and algae. â€"Randall Kohn
