Food and feeding

In the wild Marlieri cichlid prey on small aquatic snails, in the aquarium their diet should consist of meaty foods like mysis, Cyclops and brine shrimp. For the larger specimens chopped freshwater shrimp is also ideal.

Origin

Africa; this species is found in Lake Tanganyika.

Sexing

It is believed that the females are slightly larger than the males.

Breeding

It is best to buy these fish as a group and allow a pair to form, when this has happened, remove the other fish. They are secretive cave spawners so prepare the tank with rock work and caves ready for the spawnings. When the pair start to defend their territory it is likely that eggs have, or will be laid. Adding newly hatched brine shrimp will increase the chances of the fry surviving.

Lifespan

The expected life span of Julidochromis marlieri is 5-8 years.

Short description

To get the best coloration from Julidochromis marlieri add plenty of rock work to the tank. Use a fine substrate to prevent any fry from getting trapped in larger gravel pieces.
