More info

The Red Zebra Cichlid, or Metriaclima Estherae; is a beautifully vibrant mbuna species, hailing from Lake Malawi.

Similar to other inhabitants from this lake, an aquarium set-up with sand and rocks are appreciated, where this species will cohabit with other mbunas.

Growing to a size of approximately 4 inches, they are difficult to sex; males can display red tinged stripes. Breeding is especially rewarding, the mouth brooding behaviour means that females hold fry in their mouth for up to 20 days before releasing in a cloud of fry.

While omnivorous and accepting a wide variety of flake, pellets and live foods; this species does well with a higher proportion of vegetables in its diet.
