A large, beautiful and graceful cichlid, this fish is best in aquariums of 125 gallons or larger. It is also best with other calm cichlids, as females have a tendency to not carry to term when the tank is too hectic for their liking. The perfect tankmates are Paracyprichromis, Lestradea and Ectodus.

In the wild, they feed on free swimming copepods and plankton. A diet including mysis, cyclops, krill, plankton and flake is recommended.

As a shoaling fish, it is suggested to keep at least six, and preferrably more of this fish to see it ats its best behaviour.
