Haplochromis "Prognathochromis" sp. "silver stiletto" lives in Lakes Nawapassa and Kyoga. It inhabits the fringe close to the emerged payrus and plants where it hunts small haplochromines and barbs. It's an ambush predator with a white body color when in breeding mood. It has suffered a lot from the Nile perch introduction in Lake Kyoga and some remnant populations of this species that still lives in Lake Nawampassa. Being quite rare in the wild, it is important to try to breed this beautiful fish so that it can become more abundant in the hobby. Keeping this fish is not particularly difficult but due to its very low population density in the hobby, one should be willing to be patient for them to breed.

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