This species is one of the smaller of the Southern Lake Tanganyika cichlids in Africa, only attaining a maximum size of 4 inches. They have an elongated body shape, and are mostly orange in color. The mouth of these fish is surprisingly large for their size, and may be outlined in black or blue. A Tank at least 30 gallons with other smaller Tanganyikan cichlids is recommended. The aquarium should be decorated with plenty of rocks, providing lots of caves, add shells and African driftwood in order to create shelters, and places to hide.
To keep the water high pH and alkalinity needed, and to maintain their bright coloration, a sandy bottom of white aragonite would be ideal, since darker substrates will cause these fish to darken.

This is a very slow growing species which may take a few years to reach sexual maturity. The males are typically larger than the females. The female will lay her eggs within caves, and the male will fertilize them. Incubation occurs in 3 to 4 days. They are typically very good parents until they spawn again. To increase their fry survival rates, relocate the young to a separate aquarium once breeding activities between the parents are noticed.

Q: I just completed my order, what's next?
A: Before shipment, we quarantine all fish for at least 24-48 hours. During this period, we closely monitor the fish to make sure they are healthy. We also do not feed them during this time in order to 'clean out' their digestive system and limit their ability to soil the water.  This helps reduce the amount of waste in the bag and will keep the water clean.

Q: When can I expect my order to be ship?
