Comments:
Courting males have a blue coloration. Females & non-breeding males in the northern half of the lake are yellow with 3 spots while those in the southern half are silver. Its mouth has a unique beak-like shape, being laterally compressed. This adaptation affords a strong grip on its prey, which is caught in a sideways stroke of the head. It hunts mbuna from a tilted angle of the body, probably to prevent detection. Also unique to E. anagenys, it cruises through rocky habitats at high speed, stopping occasionally to hunt.
