Most cichlids in both lakes are rock-dwellers. They seldom stray far from the rocky bottoms and sides of the lake and will quickly dart into the rocks to hide. As with all cichlids, they are very territorial and will not tolerate other cichlids around their crevice.
Two of the most popular groups of these cichlids are the Peacocks (mostly the Aulonocara genus) and Mbuna's (native term for rock fish and including the genera Pseudotropheus, Labidochromis, Maylandia, Melanochromis and others).
