From the Victorian Basin, Erwin Schraml collected Lake Kijanebaloli (Kenyaboli?) in Uganda. This piscivore can grow up to 68,8mm (2.7 inches US).

I am not sure, it is not from the "lake" but from a neighboring "pond" (comparativly speaking) Lake Kenyaboli, I believe.
Sylvain Piry in France has plenty of fry. Haplochromis.org

You know, I was looking at the pictures in the paper, and the "lakes" look like mud puddles. I was thinking to myself,"theres no way there are two foot fish in there." I was earlier reading on planet catfish about how deep down the papyrus can root. They can grow in like eight feet (~3m) of water and thought it was plausable that beyond the reeds was more open water. I guess the lake is primarally papyrus reed swamp.
