Lepidophagy is widespread, having been independently evolved in at least five freshwater families and seven marine families. A related feeding behavior is pterygophagy, which are. Although Lake Tanganyika is not the most species-rich of the Great East African Lakes it comprises by far the greatest diversity of cichlid fishes in terms of morphology, ecology, and breeding styles.

Cichlid fishes in Lake Tanganyika exhibit remarkable diversity in their feeding habits. Among them, seven species in the genus Perissodus are known for their unique feeding habit of scale eating.

The lake holds at least species of cichlid fish and undescribed species remain. Almost all (98%) of the Tanganyika cichlids are endemic to the lake and it is thus an important biological resource for the study of speciation in evolution. Some of the endemics do occur slightly into the upper Lukuga River, Lake Tanganyika's outflow, but further spread into the Congo River basin is prevented Average depth: m (1, ft).

Cichlid fishes in the East African Great Lakes exhibit a remarkable diversity of feeding ecology, morphology and behaviour [].Lake Tanganyika, the oldest of these lakes with an estimated age of 9–12 Myr [], contains the the most morphologically and ecologically complex species flock of cichlid fishes [].Scale-eating cichlids of the tribe Perissodini is prehaps among the most specialized Cited by: Cichlid fishes are a paradigm for rapid speciation, species richness, and high levels of endemism, particularly in the East African Lakes Victoria, Malawi, and Tanganyika.

The cichlid species flock of Lake Tanganyika, the oldest of the East African Great Lakes, is the most diverse in terms of morphology, ecology, and by: The Xenotilapia lineage within the endemic Lake Tanganyika cichlid tribe Ectodini comprises species that display either biparental or maternal only brood care and hence offers a unique opportunity to study the evolution of distinct parental care strategies in a phylogenetic framework.

In order to reconstruct the evolutionary relationships among Cited by:   Hybridization among littoral cichlid species in Lake Tanganyika was inferred in several molecular phylogenetic studies. The phenomenon is generally attributed to the lake level-induced shoreline and habitat changes.

These allow for allopatric divergence of geographically fragmented populations alternating with locally restricted secondary contact and introgression between Cited by: Evolution of opercle shape in cichlid fishes from Lake Tanganyika - adaptive trait interactions in extant and extinct species flocks Laura A.

Sixty-nine individuals of Plecodus straeleni were followed for 1 h each in the field with the aid of SCUBA, and time budgets, hunting techniques and prey selection were investigated in relation to sex and body size.

Lake Tanganyika is not the most species-rich of the Great East African Lakes, but comprises the greatest diversity of cichlid fishes in terms of morphology, ecology, and breeding styles.

This lake harbours about species of cichlid fish, which are highly diverse in terms of morphology, behaviour, and ecology.

Perissodus microlepis is a species of cichlid endemic to Lake Tanganyika. This species reaches a length of 11 centimetres ( in) TL. This species can also be found in the aquarium trade.
