Dimidiochromis compressiceps

The long, flat head and slim, elongate body characterize the Malawian eye-biter, whose name derives from its reputation for devouring the eyes of other fish. It swims with head tilted slightly downwards ready to seize its prey. A typical habitat would be a sandy bed with plantations of Vallisneria. Size: 15-20 cm.
