" The much less explored sandy areas of Lake Malawi hide many beautiful species. Since on the sand there is no place to hide, almost all species living there have a light, silvery-yellow coloration which camouflages them. In contrast to most sanddwellers, there is a group of conspicuously colored cichlids which usually live solitarily or in very small groups. This group consists of at least five different species of teh genus Placidochromis, the blue sand dwellers "
