Description This cichlid should be kept together with other fishes of about the same size. He needs a lot of free swimming space. Because he digs a lot in the substrate it is not wise to use plants for decoration. The aquarium should be set up with driftwood and roots to make a lot of hiding places. Food You should give them powerful food such as beef heart and mussels.

Breeding is rather easy. They have a large nest. After 4 days the eggs hatch and another 4-6 days later the young fishes are swimming free. Both parents care for the fry very intensive.

Compatible with Blood Parrot, Firemouth, Jack Dempsey, Gold Severum, Green Severum, Green Terror, Pleco (Common), Salvini Cichlid, Silver Dollar
