The Dwarf Sumbu Compressiceps Cichlid (Altolamprologus compressiceps “Sumbu”) is a very rare shell-dwelling cichlid that is native to the southernmost part of Lake Tanganyika in Africa. This small species is relatively long-lived with a lifespan of up to 10 years. It has become very popular in the aquarium hobby over the past several years, but it is very rare due to its slow growth rate and small spawn size. In the wild, it spawns in the empty shells of Neothauma tanganyicense snails.  The overall coloration of this fish is white with black striping, although mature adults often have bright yellow and blue coloration as well.
