This fish specializes in stealing the eggs of spawning cichlids before the breeding female can turn and pick up the eggs. They have a horizontal stripe starting behind the gill cover and extending half the length of the body. Males are completely blue when showing dominant colouration. Males build cave craters in the Intermediate zone. It is thought their thick, strong lips may help them withstand impact with the sand when they make their high-speed egg snatches. They lie in wait more than three feet away.
