The fish has an elongated bodied with bright white edging on the dorsal fin and lyre tail. Has blue spangling and black mask on its head. It is a African cichlids native from lake Tanganyika. The males and females are similar, male get a little larger. These are captive bred and will accept a variety of foods.
This is a fish that's considered a good beginner's cichlid. However, like other cichlids it will become territorial, especially toward con-specifics, during spawning. Will do well in some planted aquarium, but will forage and dig through the substrate trying to make a burrow. This fish should be kept with other similar fish, such as small tanganikan cichlids, synodontis, rainbow fish, and small plecos.
