Neolamprologus leloupi

Explanation of the symbols


Family : Cichlidae
Origin : Lake Tanganyika
Length : 6 cm - 2.5"
Min. length aquarium : 80 cm - 30"
Small, rather peaceful cichlid that should be kept in a special aquarium for small cichlids from Lake Tanganyika.  The aquarium should be decorated with a lot of rocks and stones that form caves and crevices.  Around those caves small territories are made.  Occasionally they make a snail shell their home.

You should give them small live food.

About breeding in the aquarium not much is known.
