AQUARIUM CARE: This smallish Tanganyikan cichlid likes a rocky tank, with plenty of places to hide, as is typical of its natural habitat. Although the fish pictured is brilliant yellow, silvery and browny strains also exist. A good varied diet is essential to keep this species looking its best

BREEDING: Another father/mother family cave brooder. The fry should initially be fed with newly hatched artemia nauplii.

Fishkeeping Facts and Tips

Vegetarian fish Some catfish have a largely vegetarian diet; feed them potato, lettuce, cucumber or blanched peas. Some of these will have to be weighted down, or held in place with a commercially available 'lettuce grip'. As with all fish, do not over feed; remove uneaten vegetable matter after a couple days
