Additional names

Rusty Cichlid, Lavender Mbuna


Origin

Endemic to Lake Malawi.

Sexing

These fish are tricky to sex as, even when mature, the adults have identical colour patterns.

A relatively peaceful Mbuna that should not be kept with more territorial and aggressive species as it will be bullied.
