Victorian Cichlids

Haplochromis (Xystichromis) is a ray-finned fish genus in the family cichlidae. It has been used as the default "wastebin taxon" for Pseudocrenilabrinae cichlids of the east African rift, and as such became the "largest" fish "genus". Many of these cichlids are popular aquarium fishes; like similar Haplochromini they are known as "haplos", "happies" or "haps" among aquarium enthusiasts.
