Here is a very colorful Haplochromis Cichlid called a Super VC-10 or Placidochromis milomo. They are from deep rocky habitats of East Africa and the lips of a mature P. milomo are very thick & rubbery to the touch, but these thickened lips serve as gaskets and seal off an area of interest…..to extract prey from a small hole, crevice or cave! This fish simply expands its buccal cavity thereby creating a suction affect! It dines on insect larvae, crustaceans, and occassionally mbuna fry.  It’s breeding habit it of course a Maternal Mouthbrooder.
