Haplochromis "Paralabidochromis" chilotes comes in a multitude of geographical color morphs, ocurring all over Lake Victoria. It feeds on insect larvae that live in the algae growing over the rocks. Courting males are aggressive in the defense of their territory but otherwise, this is a mild-mannered cichlid. Brooding females take up seclusion among the rocks until after releasing their clutch.

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