Explanation of the symbols


Family : Cichlidae
Origin : Lake Tanganyika
Length : 30 cm - 12"
Min. length aquarium : 200 cm - 80"
English names : Convict Julie, Regan's Julie, Striped Julie
Most tolerant Julidochromis.  Only during breeding time he is aggressive.  Then he digs in the substrate as well.  The aquarium should be decorated with a lot of rocks that form caves and crevices. Here the fish can retreat.  Some hard plants such as Vallisneria can be used for decoration as well.

They are omnivorous.  You should give the a great variety of live, frozen and dry food.

Breeding is rather easy.  The eggs are laid in a cave.  The parents hardly care for the fry but they defend the territory very strong.
