No lake in the world contains such a diversified and distinct community of cichlid fishes as Lake Malawi. Over the years Malawi cichlids, which are among the most colorful freshwater fishes known, have become very popular among aquarists as they are easy to maintain and breed in captivity. The total number of cichlid species in the lake is now estimated at about 1000, which is about 200 more than all the freshwater fish species of the North American Continent combined! And there is every indication that still more remain to be discovered.

In this video, Ad Konings talks about the various kinds of feeding behavior in Malawi cichlids. He uses detailed photos and close-up video footage to explain the sometimes astonishing methods of how these inventive fishes cope with their environment.
