Comments:
Mature males are 2" while females a slightly smaller. L. ornatipinnis 'kigoma' prefers to spawn against rocks or a rock wall. They must be feed well and the water quality must be pristine to avoid losses or illness. They like to hold a large territory. They will tolerate other fish when not spawning but rarely tolerate unpaired conspecifics.
L. ornatipinnis 'kigoma' tend to try and hold the highest point near their principle shell, and display/flare to ward off contenders.
Spawning pairs may not tolerate older fry. Older fry will be driven away or killed to make room for new spawns.
