Lichnochromis acuticeps is a species which mainly can be found in reasonable shallow water in the intermediate zones from rocks to sand in the entire lake. In an aquarium it is also necessary for them that there are some hiding places.

In the beginning of 2016 I bought a pair of this species, then they were about 7-8 cm. From these young fish the male is - in this moment (mid- 2017)- about 12 cm and his female is about 10 cm.
They are showing themselves quite good in this tank and the male is slowly starting to get some color now, his anal fin begins to get a red glow. Up till now the male is very tolerant against his female, probably because they are very young. They are also very tolerant against the other inhabitants and they have also been accepted by the other fish in this tank. The pictures of this species are not all showing a full coloured male yet, we'll put more of them on this site in the future when he's completely coloured however that will take some time.

Lichnochromis acuticeps is a predator so were dealing here with a species which likes eating fish. Its important to offer him regularly such kind of food like living small fish, mysis, krill, artemia, shrimpmix and they eat a lot of young fish when we keep them with mbuna.
