Aulonocranus dewindti is a mouthbrooding cichlid who inhabits the sandy bottom of Lake Tanganyika; one of the Great Rift Valley lakes on the African continent. Its home is the so called intermediate habitat, which is a biotope consisting of a sandy bottom speckled with a lot of rocks and empty shells.Aulonocranus dewindti is well adapted to a life in this biotope and has developed enlarged sensory pores on the head which help it detect crustaceans and insect larvae hiding in the sand.Aulonocranus dewindti belongs to a group of Tanganyika cichlids known as featherfins. As the name suggests, their common characteristics are elongated, delicate fins, somewhat resembling the feathers of a bird.
