Food

The Brichardi Cichlid is an omnivore and will feed on crustaceans, invertebrates and plankton in the wild. In an aquarium, this cichlid will accept a variety of flakes, dried and live foods.

Sexing

The male Fairy Cichlids are slightly larger with longer anal, dorsal and caudal fins. The females are a little bit smaller and much more timid.

Breeding

Fairy Cichlids form monogamous pairs that stay partnered throughout their entire lives. They are substrate spawners and extremely great parents. Once the fry absorb their yolk sacs they can be fed newly hatched brine shrimp and finely crushed flakes.

Lifespan

This cichlid will live for approximately 8-10 years.

Origin

These cichlids come from the northern area of Lake Tanganyika of Africa.

Description

These fish are known for their unique breeding habits. They are the only fish in Africa known to share parenting responsibilities as a school of fish. Each adult and juvenile will contribute to protecting eggs, fry and spawning parents. These cichlids have such large schools that up to 100,000 of these fish will live together in a small area of water. This is the main reason why they do best in a species tank.
