Platytaeniodus is a monotypic genus which means that it has only one described species. The genus Platytaeniodus is characterized by an unique jaw structure and dental forms (pyriform teeth and horse shoe shaped jaw) that you don't find in any of the others snail eaters. This species lives over muddy bottom in shallow water. It was widely distributed before the Nile perch decimated the population to near extinction in the wild. It is a sky blue colored species with bright red fins in nuptial colors. Due to its very low population density in the lake, one should take care of this fish if we want to see it for a long time in our aquariums. A preservation program needs to be developed to make this fish common in the hobby.
