Anagrams of Mbuna Generic Names

An anagram contains all the same letters, used the same number of times, as in the starting word(s). For example, you can rearrange the letters in rearrange to make rare anger. (But why would you? It's such a good way to procrastinate. Ah! "Procrastinate" ... Rapt creations! Rarest caption! Satanic report! Erotic Spartan! Prostrate Inca! Tapir ancestor! Catnip roaster! Sapient carrot!)

I used the now-defunct Webster Anagram Engine (but the even better Internet Anagram Server is available) as an aid in deriving the following anagrams for the Mbuna flock (or you can skip the Mbuna and jump to "Hap" flock anagrams.) Granted, most are nothing more than engaging gibberish — but some of the anagrams, if you know the fish, seem eerily appropriate.
