"There is a well documented report by Guma'a of VIVIPARITY in this species(1982; Hydrobiologia 89: 285-300; see Wildekamp '96 for review). Guma'a's specimens were from the Bahr el Ghazel. Incredibly, despite the general interest in the evolution of viviparity, NO ONE has followed this up even to the extent of just looking at specimens from other drainages."

Lake_Djara

Chad

Epiplatys bifasciatus and Hemichromis fasciatus, are recorded for the first time from the Sahara desert, in Lake Boukou and Lake Djara respectively, two of the seven Ounianga Serir lakes in northern Chad. The nearest known populations of these two species are located 900 km to the southwest in Lake Chad. The Ounianga Serir lakes, which resisted the increasing aridity of Sahara since the Holocene by virtue of subsurface inflow of fresh groundwater from a large fossil aquifer, present the richest relict fish fauna of the Sahara, with at least eight species, including also Hemichromis cf. letourneuxi, Sarotherodon galilaeus borkuanus, Coptodon zillii, Astatotilapia tchadensis, Polypterus senegalus and Poropanchax norman

Relict fish fauna of the Sahara. See "Epiplatys bifasciatus (Steindachner, 1881) (Nothobranchiidae) and Hemichromis fasciatus Peters, 1852 (Cichlidae), two relict fish species in the Sahara desert" (PDF) by Sébastien Trape
