You can keep this peaceful dwarfcichlid in an aquarium that is set up especially for dwarfcichlids.  The aquarium should be set up with stones, driftwood and roots, and on the sides and background densely planted, because they need hiding places.  The substrate should be dark and the light dimmed by floating plants to bring out the colours of this fish.  A territory is made.

You should give them live food such as small insect larvae and Artemia.  Sometimes they accept dry food as well.

About breeding in  the aquarium not much is known yet.
