Labidochromis sp. perlmutt
Labidochromis sp. perlmutt pictured.
- Common Name: None
- Locations Collected From: Mbamba Bay Island and Chuwa(south coast of Mbamba Bay).
- Approximate Size: 4.5 inches with females staying slightly smaller.
- Food: Not picky. Did not refuse anything I offered them.
- Water Conditions: Tolerant of a 7.5pH – 8.5pH and a temperature range of 75 – 82 degrees F.
- Breeding Behavior: Mouthbrooder. Males are quite aggressive towards females and even with a lot of females and rock work you still might have problems with aggression. I got small spawns usually between 15 – 20 per spawn.
- Tankmates: Will aggressively defend their territory and should be put with other species that can defend themselves.
