Scientific Name: Pseudotropheus socolofi sometimes called Pindani. This is a monomorphic maternal mouthbrooder that makes its living grazing algae off of rocks. As most pseudotropheus, is an herbivore and territorial in the aquarium. Socolofi is a great fish for a beginner and is found in the Standard mix and Prestige mix featured on the specials section of this web site. This fish gets 5 to 6 inches and males and females are identical except for the lack of egg spots on many of the females.

They prosper on the Bluegrass Aquatics All Purpose Fish Food sold on this site. They appreciate the addition of a quality aquarium or Cichlid Salt at the rate of 1 teaspoon per gallon of water.

AFRICAN CICHLIDS SOLD ON THIS SITE ARE GENERALLY 1.25 INCHES TO 2.25 INCHES IN LENGTH AND ARE SOLD AS UNSEXED JUVENILES. DIFFERENT SIZES WILL BE DESIGNATED IN THE SIZE CHART BELOW.

Regular: 1.25 -2.25 inches

Medium: 2.5- 3.5 inches

Large: 4-6 inches

If you are stocking a new tank or a tank with cichlids under 3 inches you will be safe with small , and regular sizes.  If you are stocking a tank that has existing cichlids that are over 3 inches you should only choose regular, or medium sizes.

Most cichlids sold in pet stores are 2 -2.5 inches in size. Our fish are sold smaller because of the demand for these fish and because they ship better at smaller sizes.  Our customers have accepted this due to the rarity of the fish offered on our website compared to many of the retail stores. These fish grow so fast, the initial size is less relevant to the quality of genetics and rarity of species.  Our regular sized fish will measure between  the width of a quarter and the width of a $.50 cent piece.   The dynamics of the size is manifested when you know that a 2  inch fish will appear to be 3-4 times the mass of a 1.25 inch fish, since it is not just longer but deeper and thicker and the color is often more robust.
