  • Common name:  Parvidens Red or Red Parvidens
  • Location and Lake collected from:  Lake Victoria
  • Approximate size:  6.5 inches
  • Food:  Will eat almost any food offered.  They will eat pellet foods and larger flakes, and mine love Brine Shrimp.  Mine seem to sit back and hunt the food they are going to eat and then strike at it as if the food were a fish.
  • pH:  7.4 – 8.5
  • Temperature:  76 – 82 degrees F
  • Breeding behavior:  Mouthbrooder.  Only 1 male per tank is recommended.  My male depending on his mood, goes from ignoring my female to aggressively chasing her around the tank.  Depending on their mood, my females can be just as aggressive as the males.
  • Tankmates:  I have mine in with adult Cyphotilapia frontosa, Altolamprologus compressiceps, Chalinochromis brichardi and my male parvidens is the boss of the tank.
  • Tank size:  I have a pair of young adults in a 70 gallon aquarium.
  • Additional notes:
