AQUARIUM CARE: A larger and more aggressive Julie that pairs for life. It inhabits the rocky shores of Lake Tanganyika, and as such requires a rocky aquarium with plenty of caves. Once a pair is established they can be very terratorial, so it is advisable to keep them either as a pair - or in a spaceous rift lake community. Pairing is best achieved by buying a group of young, and removing the unpaired individuals

BREEDING: Spawning occurs on a substrate inside a cave. The young can be raised with the parents.

Fishkeeping Facts and Tips

Avoid tankbusters! Too many tropical fish stores sell small fish that will continue growing until too big for any home aquarium. Rehousing can be very difficult indeed. Avoid species such as the shovel-nosed and red tailed catfish
