Nestled between Malawi, Mozambique, and Tanzania, Lake Malawi is the third largest lake in Africa. The waters of Malawi have given birth to some of the most diverse fish found in any single body of water. Lake Malawi contains almost 1,000 species of fish, more than Europe and North America combined.
There are three main biotopes in Lake Tanganyika: Open Water, Rocky, and Shell Beds. Each attracts a different set of fish, which are kept and bred differently.
