Etymology: Haplochromis: Greek, Haploos = single + Greek, chromis = a fish, perhaps a perch (Ref. 45335);  goldschmidti: This species is named in honour of Dr. Tijs Goldschmidt in appreciation for his work on haplochromine cichlids of Lake Victoria; the specific epithet, goldschmidti, is a Latinized version (genitive case) of the surname (Ref. 92860).

Environment / Climate / Range Ecology

Freshwater; pelagic; depth range 4 - 10 m (Ref. 92860).   Tropical

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 6.9 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 92860)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Vertebrae: 30 - 32. 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. 92860). Mainly bicuspid teeth in oral jaws (Ref. 92860). Generally premaxillary dentigerous arm edentulous over caudal 1/5-1/4 (Ref. 92860). Males silvery with dusky flush on chest, flank, ventral side and ventral half of caudal peduncle (Ref. 92860).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Caught over mud bottoms at depths of 4-10 meters (Ref. 92860). Stomach and intestines of five examined specimens caught by day contained mainly zooplankton and some insects (Ref. 92860). Based on the egg dummies on the anal fin of males, this species is probably a female mouth brooder (Ref. 92860).
