Very peaceful mouthbrooder. They have no territory and they live alone or as a couple. The aquarium should be set up with rocks and stones that make caves and crevices because they need hiding places. A densely planted area gives shelter for breeding females with fry as well



They are omnivorous. You should give them a great variety of live, frozen and dry food.



Breeding is easy. When the eggs are laid the female takes them in her mouth immediately. The eggs are fertilized by the male using the dummy egg method. After 3 weeks the young fishes leave the mouth of the mother for the first time. After that the mother cares for the fry another week.

Mbuna Cichlids such as the Auratus, Cobalt Blue, Johanni, Pindani, Red Zebra, Tropheops, and Kenyi. Also synodontis catfish. Too aggressive for Haplochromis and Peacock Cichlids.
