Lamprologus callipterus is a species of cichlid endemic to Lake Tanganyika where it very actively moves about in search of crustaceans and other invertebrates. Males of this species can reach a length of 12.4 centimetres TL while the females only grow to 4.5 centimetres TL. Wikipedia


Lamprologus Callipterus are known¬† as “The shell collector” because the males will carry shells in their mouth and take them into their nest. Males can make mounds or piles of 50-100 shells that they will call their home. Many females may live in the same nest with one male as he actively defends the territory.
