This species is closely related to L. sp. "Nyassae" but differs in at least two important ways. First, this species is found in significantly deeper habitats (35-53 meters) while N. sp. "Nyassae" is found in shallow water. Secondly, N. sp. "Yellow Collar" builds bowers (instead of borrowing nests from other species in the "off season"), which are saucer-shaped and about a meter in diameter! In the center of the crater, the male constructs several cones or turrets. Characteristic of this species is the black pigment band formed in the rear part of the dorsal fin. Males have many large egg spots on the anal fin. Females tend to cluster together in groups. This is not an assertive cichlid and can easily be oppressed by more active or dominant tank mates. Careful selection of tank mates is advised. Like all Lethrinops species, L. sp. "Yellow Collar" hunts by shoveling and filtering the substrate for food particles.
