The lini has a unique hunting technique which consists of using its long, protrusible snout to suck small cichlids from cracks & crevices. Sexually active males lose their camouflage and assume a solid blue color. Ripe females is grey-brown and these also lose most of their blotched pattern. When they assume these breeding colors, the large, orange egg-spots disappear!
