  • Common Names: Chisumulu Clown
  • Locations Collected From: Chizumulu Island.
  • Approximate Size:  3.5 inches with females around 3 inches
  • Food: Not very picky.  Mine ate pellets, flake, daphnia, mosquito larvae, brine shrimp, and algae off the rocks.
  • Water Conditions:  Can tolerate a pH of 7.5 – 8.5 and a temperature range of 75 – 82 degrees F.
  • Breeding Behavior: Mouthbrooder.   Males tend to be very aggressive towards females even with rock work.  More than one female for each male and only one male in each aquarium is recommended.  I had to keep my male separated from the females until they were ready to spawn.  When the females were ready I would put the male back into the tank with them and then had to remove the male again after they had spawned.  Small spawns, my breeders averaged between 15 – 20 fry per spawn.
  • Tankmates:  Does well with most Mbuna and Victorians.  Not recommended for tanks with Aulonocara in them.
