Scientific Name: Protomelas sp. "Steveni Taiwan" (Taiwan Reef) this beautiful fish is found in rocky habitats of the Taiwan Reef, of Lake Malawi. This Hapochromis is an herbivore, feeding primarily on algae growing on the rocks. This peaceful Dimorphic Maternal Mouth brooder reaches a maximum size of 6 inches and is a favorite in the Hap and Hap/peacock mixes featured on this site. It performs well on the Red Zebra Stampede and Rainbow Zebra foods though a supplement of Hippocampus Green is recommended and even appreciated by the carnivore Haps and omnivore peacocks that may share the same tank. A tank size of 55 gallon and larger is recommended and temp of 78 to 82 degrees and an aquarium or cichlid salt at the rate of 1 tablespoon per 5 gallons is also helpful.
