Short description

As mentioned above Konia eisentrauti are on the endangered species list, they occupy the crater lakes in Cameroon but stocks are depleting due to the extinct volcanoes releasing toxin gas clouds which rise through the water affecting the inhabitants. They are not that common in the aquatic hobby and little information is available about their native lifestyle.
