      Scientific Name: Liopropoma africanum
      Max. size: 8.0 cm TL (male/unsexed)
      Environment: reef-associated; marine; depth range 8 - 48 m; Temperature 22 - 27ºC
      Distribution: Indian Ocean = Pemba Island, Tanzania to Djibouti. Reported from West Sumatra, Indonesia.
      Biology: Inhabits recesses of seaward reefs
      Aquarium Care: Provide plenty of hiding places, crevices, and non-aggressive tankmates. Liopropoma spp. are well suited to a minireef. They won't bother most ornamental inverts, however, they may eat smaller crustaceans (i.e. copepods, amphipods). In order to retain coloration, feed a varied diet. Upon introduction, the Liopropoma spp. may hide for several days before venturing out. When kept with large competetive fish, they will stay hidden and go off foods. With plenty of hiding places, two different species can be kept together, if introduced at the same time. Unless a very large system, it is recommended only one species per tank.
