Diet: Will accept most foods offered but live and frozen varieties should form the bulk of the diet.

Lake Mai-Ndombe is a black water lake, meaning its water is stained with tannins released from decaying organic matter. A slightly aggressive cichlid, forms pairs and close family groups. Best kept in a well structured tank with plants and driftwood. The addition of dried leaf litter would further emphasize the natural feel.
