Offering Lodotropheus sprengerae (Rusty Cichlid).

So named for its rusty brown colouration, these cichlids grow to approximately 4 inches, with mature males developing lovely purple colouration. It is among the lesser aggressive mbuna types, and therefore a better introduction to beginner mbuna keepers, however care must be taken with tankmates and water conditions to ensure this fish isn’t bullied by more aggressive African cichlids. By adding plenty of rockwork, this gives the rusty cichlid security and cover, with regular water changes best advised to maintain their health. It is recommended to avoid too much meaty food in this fish’s diet, as digestive problems can result.
