Conservation: Haplochromis lividus is evaluated by the international union for the conservation of nature in the iucn red list of threatened species as (DD) data deficient (). This species seems not extinct nor endangered, it has a wide distribution within the lake Victoria and seems protected from Nile perch predation by its habitat. Original description as Haplochromis paropius: ZooBank:3FCB4D8B-FCC8-BDA54B Greenwood, Peter Humphry & J. M. Gee. "A revision of the Lake Victoria Haplochromis species (Pisces, Cichlidae), part VII".

Conservation: Haplochromis flavus is evaluated by the international union for the conservation of nature in the iucn red list of threatened species as (LC) least concern (). Comments: In the original publication it was described as 'Haplochromis flavus', the genus 'Haplochromis' has not been described, so the species could be considered a. Diagnosis: Haplochromis vanoijeni is a small sized (less than 9 cm standard length), micrognathic species with generalized body profile, but with a relatively long and acute snout; because of the latter, and its relatively small interorbital width, the species bears some resemblance with species of the 'tridens' group; indeed, it has some tricuspid teeth rostrally in the outer row of the oral. Vertebrae: 30 - Diagnosis: Small sized, slender (body depth less than 28% of standard length), micrognathic, zooplanktivorous Haplochromis species with a slightly curved to straight dorsal head profile (Ref. ).Mainly bicuspid teeth in oral jaws (Ref. ).Generally premaxillary dentigerous arm edentulous over caudal 1//4 (Ref. ). Conservation: Haplochromis riponianus is evaluated by the international union for the conservation of nature in the iucn red list of threatened species as (LC) least concern (). Haplochromis riponianus is still living in the lake, some has been caught in by Yves Fermon in the Kenyan shores.

Occurs in the littoral and sublittoral areas. Most specimens were caught over a hard substrate (sand, shingle and rock), few over mud (Ref. ).Feeds on fish embryos or larvae (Ref. ).

More on author: Pellegrin. Usually collected from exposed sandy beaches and exposed shorelines with a hard substrate, few from sheltered bays with organic mud bottoms (Ref. ).Specimens which were examined contained soft parts of gastropods in the stomach (Ref. ). Ribbink () observed that mouthbrooding adults of three predatory Lake Malawi cichlids contained young of Haplochromis chrysonotus. A closer look revealed that members of 12 Haplochromis species and of Serranochromis robustus regularly cared for young of 15 different species, in addition to their own young (Ribbink et al., ). The authors concluded from their observations that in Lake Malawi “all species .
