Overview

Cichlids should be housed in a tank with plenty of hiding places and ample swimming space. Males are not suitable to be housed with more peaceful tank mates unless they are too large for this cichlid to harass, as they are an incredibly aggressive and territorial Mbuna species. Females, however, are much more moderately tempered and can be housed together and with other cichlids, or in a group with one male. 

They are an omnivore and will readily eat a wide variety of live, frozen, pellet and flake foods.
