Tropheus Duboisi Halembe

Postby naturlvr » Mon May 27, 2019 7:19 pm

I just got my third wave of African Cichlids to complete my new tank (75 gallons).
I have ordered mostly Mbunas and Haps but then I heard that many people have success with fish from all the African lakes.
One of the fish I ordered is the Tropheus Duboisi Halembe.
What a wonderful fish! But now I am reading that this fish cannot eat protein ...that would be in the diet of my community tank which is stocked with omnivors and herbavores.
I hear that this fish will get the bloat from eating the food in the tank that is protein based including blood worms.
Do I need to find this fish a new home quickly or can he survive my tank?

I would only keep Tropheus in a species tank.They do best on a diet of quality Spirulina.
