'G.' pellegrini tolerates a wide range of water conditions, including somewhat hard water. Currently, it is difficult if not impossible to find this majestic species in North American aquariums. Females remain 2" smaller than males. Sexually mature males show a red-orange color all over the body. Males also have a slight hump on the head. They are a very peaceful species and must be kept with tankmates that are peaceful as well. Breeding takes place in typical eartheater fashion. Females are ovophilous and brood for 12 days. After 12 days, the females will release her brood and take them back in her mouth for an additional 5 days.
