- Stauffer, Jay Richard Jr. & K. Black & A.F. Konings. 2013. "Descriptions of five new species of Metriaclima (Teleostei: Cichlidae) from Lake Malaŵi, Africa". Zootaxa. v. 3647(n. 1), pp. 101-136 (crc05041) (摘要).
保育: Metriaclima tarakiki 未被国际自然保护联盟（IUCN）在濒危物种红色名录中为自然保育进行评估There is a chance that M. tarakiki could become threatened with overfishing because they often feed on plankton in the water column in the vicinity of large boulders where nets can be employed. Currently (2013) there appears to be no decline in its population although the OB morphs are rather popular in the ornamental fish trade.
