Offering Pseudotropheus socolofi (Powder Blue Cichlid).

Endemic to Lake Malawi. It occurs along the coast of Mozambique, between Cobue and Tumbi point, although it has been introduced elsewhere. Arrange piles of rockwork in such a way as to form lots of caves and hiding places, leaving some open areas for swimming. A sandy substrate is preferable. It will accept most foods offered but vegetable matter in the form of spirulina flakes, blanched spinach, nori etc. should form a large proportion of the diet. This can be supplemented with live and frozen varieties. Never feed beefheart or any other red meat as it will interfere with the digestive system of these fish.
