More info

A strikingly coloured breeding strain African cichlid from the Malawi Butterfly, the Eureka Red is a popular addition due to its metallic blue and red colouration, and relative mild nature.

Males are likely to grow to approximately 7 inches, with females reaching just below.

It's highly recommended to provide a sandy substrate, with plenty of rockwork to establish territories, protection and stimulation for the fish.

Being a carnivorous fish, the eureka red requires a high protein diet; which can be achieved through flake foods, pellets; with helpings of live and/or frozen foods. Bloodworm will help bring out their colouration.

Interestingly, this species can hybridize; so avoid keeping it with similar species to prevent this. The fish reproduces through mouth brooding, with females storing the fry in her mouth while the male stands guard.
