It's name, "bifrenatus" refers to the two stripes on the body of this fish, which differentiates it from other Chalinochromis, along with an interrupted band just at the base of the dorsal of some individuals.

They dine of small crustaceans, insect larvae, small molluscs and other live food that live in the aufwuchs. In eating this food, they also ingest sediment algae and sand.

In the aquarium they can be fed on mysis shrimp, krill, flakes, pellets, mosquito larvae and artemia (brine shrimp)
