Family : Cichlidae
Origin : Lake Tanganyika
Length : 20 cm - 8"
Min. length aquarium : 200 cm - 80"
Rather predatory fish.  In his natural habitat he feeds on small shell dwellers.  You should keep them together with other large cichlids and catfishes from Lake Tanganyika.  The aquarium should be set up with rocks and stones that form caves and crevices.  You can use some plants such as Giant Vallisneria as well.  A regular changing of the water and a good filter are necessary.

You should give them live food.  After habituation frozen food is accepted as well.

About breeding in the aquarium nothing is known.
