Conservation: Taeniolethrinops furcicauda is evaluated by the international union for the conservation of nature in the iucn red list of threatened species as (LC) least concern (2018). Mouthbrooding females of Taeniolethrinops furcicauda are not uncommon in the shallow intermediate habitat and therefore there probably exists a healthy population in the deeper areas.
