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

What fish are good community fish? There is no absolute answer to this, but in general a community tank should contain only species that will tolerate each others behaviour, are approximately the same size, eat the same foods, and accept the same water conditions. Hardy tank bred fish that have adapted somewhat to local water conditions, and have no special dietary requirements usually make good candidates
