The Lithobates comes from Lake Malawi, Africa. It has been found between Domwe Island and Monkey Bay and also at Thumbi (East and West), Mumbo, Chinyamwezi and Zimbawe Rock. It inhabits caves and crevices in rocky areas.

A large area of your aquarium should contain piles of rocks, arranged to form caves with areas of open water between. A sandy substrate is preferable. Lithobates don’t usually  damage vegetation so plants can be used but are not essential. The same is also true of driftwood pieces. If plants are to be used, select hard water tolerant species such as Anubias or Vallisneria.

The Lithobates is a  relatively peaceful fish ideal for many African cichlid communities. Ideally, it should be kept in a Lake Malawi biotope aquarium with fish such as peaceful Haps. It can be maintained in groups but does become territorial when spawning.
