Remarks: Very similar to many other mloto-types from Malawi, Copadichromis trewavasae from Lupingu has been nicknamed the Ivory-Head Hap. When males are turned on, they exhibit dark black or navy bodies with a white blaze from their nose to their caudal fin, running along the top half of their body and into the dorsal fin. They are stunning fish that will display best coloration in a harem set-up of 1 male and several females.
