Comments:
Cynotilapia has a very wide distribution with a wide array of coloration. In the wild they are found in the open water, near rocks, where they primarily feed on plankton. Males are territorial. Spawning takes place in the male's territory - a large, dark cave found among large boulders. Females are non-territorial and form large schools in mid-water and feed on the plankton together during the day hours.
