Brevis shelldweller - Neolamprologus brevis

Brevis shelldweller - Neolamprologus brevis

Scientific name: Neolamprologus brevis

014

Recommended pH range for the species: 7.5 - 8.5

Recommended water hardness (dGH): 10 - 20°N (178.57 - 357.14ppm)

Where the species comes from: Africa

Temperament to its own species: aggressive/territorial

Temperament toward other fish species: aggressive/territorial

Usual place in the tank: Bottom levels

Diet: Carnivore, micropredator. Brevis shelldweller can be kept in small tanks, even though I usually recommend to create enough empty space for swimming, because you never know. This species is aggressive, especially a male towards another male, so it’s always better to keep more females with one male. Don’t forget about shells, which are required for their successful breeding. Their basic colour is a golden mixed with beige.
