Comments:
Once paired up, this can be one of the most aggressive Tanganyikan cichlids. Not only will it attach tankmates, it will hit the front of the glass when you walk by in defence of its territory. They are best kept in a species tank.

They dine on crustaceans, insect larvae, plankton and other live food in the wild. They will readily eat flakes and pellets, but will thrive with the addition of mysis shrimp, krill or brine shrimp added to this diet.
