AFRICAN RIFT LAKE CICHLIDS: BRICHARDI CICHLIDS

brichardi30_zps0154de92.jpg

Cooperative substrate brooding- a unique breeding tactic of cichlids in lake Tanganyika and characterizes the "brichardi complex" cichlid group - eight different species with the same social behavior. There is one or more representative from this group at the rocky area along the lake shores, mainly at a depth of 7-15 meters. Male and female live together for long period of time and raises many generations of descendants. Older offspring help their parents guard the younger juveniles And forming a kind of "protective zone" around the territory and thus increases the survival of the fry. The bigger offspring scattered further away from the rocky territory and used as observers on the environment against predators. If a predator attacks, these observers warn the rest of the colony, including the adult male and female. Usually, those who'll be eaten are the observers (who is not sexually active) and thus low species vulnerability affects.

Part one - substrate spawners
