Be the first to own a colony of these beautiful bright cichlids. The picture inset is from our own actual stock that we are shipping. The Strawberry Peacock Cichlid originates from the Southern part of Lake Malawi and is a semi-aggressive omnivore.
Provide about 3 to 5 females to every male in this species. The females have less color than males as do all peaacocks. Females will hold eggs in her mouth (mouth-brood) for about 8-12 days. Their aquarium should be well-aquascaped with plenty of rocks to provide breeding grounds, hiding places, and to create territories. This species is simple to keep, and breed, but appropriate levels of salt and trace elements should be added to the aquarium to promote proper health.
SHIPS GREAT, EZ Fish to own!
