This is a graceful fish, that is very rare in the hobby, and somewhat more difficult to breed then most Neolamprologus. Typically they have no more then 20 eggs per spawn, but are very protective of their fry. Their name comes from their black, oversized pectoral fins, which they seem to use to position themselves.

They feed on insect larvae, shrimps, copepods and small molluscs in the wild. In the aquarium they will gladly accept flakes and pellets, but will do better with a variety including mysis shrimp, krill, brine shrimp and grocer shrimps.
