Haplochromis "Lipochromis" parvidens appears to be extinct in Lake Victoria but still living in Lakes Kyoga and Nawampassa. In the past, there were three species of parvidens-like fish in the hobby; shovel mouth parvidens, red parvidens, and blue parvidens. The strain we still have in the hobby has a vivid red color on the flanks and originated from Lake Nawampassa. The red parvidens is the only one still kept in the hobby. It preys upon the embryos and eggs of mouth brooding females. It reaches a length of 15 cm long. This cichlid is quite peaceful and has a shy temperament. This species needs an effort of conservation by hobbyists as has become very rare in the wild.

You will note that we have indicated the genus Lipochromis as a subgenus in quotation marks until a re-evaluation of Humphrey Greenwoods classifications is completed.
