Looking For A Fish For Your Tank? Read More About Neolamprologus Brichardi


Neolamprologus brichardi

  • Description: Similar to a “Daffodil” without the yellowfins and different markings on the face.
  • Common Names: Princess of Burundi
  • Locations Collected From: Wide distribution in the lake.
  • Approximate Size: 3 – 3.5 inches not counting the tail.
  • Food: Not picky, I have not tried them with pellet food.
  • Water Conditions: Tolerates a pH of 7.5 – 9.0 and a temperature range of 72 – 82 degrees F.  I put 4 in a 55 gallon to cycle the tank which averaged a temperature of 72 degrees F without a heater.  Within 1 month I got a pair and had close to 300 fry in this tank.
  • Breeding Behavior:  Egglayer.  Once you get a pair they will aggressively defend their territory and fry.  Normal spawns are around 75 – 100 fry for adults.  I have spawned them several times and each time I have had to remove the extra adults from the tank.  They like to spawn in caves or shells.
  • Tankmates: I haven’t tried them with anything.   Mine paired off and stayed in their own tank. If kept as single-sex they should do well with leleupi, transcriptus, and other similar-sized species.
