Offering  Melanochromis auratus (Golden Mbuna Cichlid).

The Frontosa cichlid, or humphead cichlid; is a lar ge, beautifully coloured fish characterised by its large forehead hump and black bars against a white / blue body. They grow very large (up to 14 inches) and are therefore only suitable for large aquaria, where they can easily serve as the centrepiece. Being generally peaceful, it prefers to swim in groups of its own kind it is therefore not uncommon to see them housed in species aquaria only. Feed a balanced diet from flake, pellets, live and/or frozen foods, with vegetable matter helping to maintain their overall health. Regular, large water changes for this species is a must, due to their large bioload.
