Jump to next section Husbandry Information
FeedingOmnivorous with a tendency towards meaty foods. Not an effective algae eater. Well fed individuals will not damage most plants.
FurnitureRock piles and wood tangles. Plants are not vital.
CompatibilityPeaceful if a little territorial. As a rough guide give each fish a 12 inch square area well broken up with decorations.
Suggested TankmatesA medium sized pleco that can be combined with a very wide array of tankmates due to its unfussy nature. Perfectly safe with small fishes and shrimp or robust enough to withstand the attention of all but the largest cichlids.
BreedingCave spawner.
