Above is a link....it's an old article but a decent read.

Topic: "The comparative osteology of the suspensorial complex in 20 species of epilithic
algal feeders from Lake Tanganyika was studied as a means of obtaining fundamental
data for understanding the adaptive radiation in feeding habits of cichlid fishes in the East
African lakes."

Comments: cool comparison between petros, simos, and others jaw structure.

Sorry it's a little old, but any study on petro is hard to find.
I ate my fish that died.
