Comments:
A smaller growing species that will appreciate a high quality, highly varied, vegetable/protein based diet. This bottom sifting cichlid, will prefer a sand substrate. Beware of conspecific aggression - adults of this species are best kept as individuals or established pairs in the aquarium.
