This Cichlid from Lake Tanganyika needs an aquarium with lots of rocks and a sandy bottom. A substrate like aragonite is ideal to keep pH in the 7.8-8.6 range. Cichlids can be aggressive towards its own species and a common strategy for this is to have lots of Cichlids so that a single fish isnt singled out for bullying. Having three to four females to one male is also helpful for this.
