" Boulengerochromis microlepis is, with a maximum adult length of about 70 cm, one of the biggest (maybe even the biggest) cichlids in the world. It is a notorious predator which catches its prey by pursuit. There are a few reports about its breeding technique in its natural environment but these are somewhat contradictory, this article reports on probably the first successful reproduction of this cichlid in aquarium "
