Comments:
Non-territorial individuals from Chizumulu Is. & Cobue are golden yellow instead of silver. This species preys on juveniles (particularly Copadichromis spp.) hiding among plants. Its laterally compressed body helps it avoid detection. It has a large protrusible mouth that can reach out & suck in its prey. This large mouth also accomodates extra large spwans of 200-250!
