The Venustus Cichlid, otherwise known as the Giraffe cichlid is so named for its patterned colouration resembling that of a giraffe. This is a large African cichlid growing to approximately 10 inches, that prefers large open areas of water therefore large tanks are a must. They are noted for being intelligent even for cichlid, in particular they are ambush specialists. Burying themselves in sand and waiting for unsuspecting smaller fish to investigate, before pouncing. With moderate aggression, it is recommended to avoid keeping them with hyper aggressive mbunas, and feed a balanced diet to avoid bloating
