Remarks: These shell-dwellers will use round snail shells as breeding locations, sometimes burying the shell in sand to conceal it. Neolamprologus brevis were once part of the genus Lamprologus. In the wild, they occupy shells of snails that have been eaten by Synodontis multipunctatus. Males are nearly twice as large as females, but at a young age it is impossible to tell the sexes apart.
These fish exhibit a remarkable behavior when choosing their spawning site. If no shells are overturned, they will turn them with their mouths. After positioning the shell with the opening facing upward, they will bury the shell by whipping their tails in the sand.
