Chromidotilapia guentheri(Mouthbrooding Krib, Günther's Mouthbrooder)

A medium-sized species with a laterally compressed body and a piniish-green colouration. Females are easily distinguished by the presence of a white fringe along the top of the dorsal fin. Males lack this and tend to be a little larger as well.


Fish information (behaviour and breeding):

Territorial and aggressive towards their own kind and potentially other cichlids, they are generally indifferent to other types of tankmates, such as barbs and characins.

A mouthbrooding species, but with each parent taking turns to brood the eggs and fry. This unusual behaviour makes these fish a very interesting subject for experienced aquarists able to provide the correct water conditions and high water quality that this species needs.

Family Group: African Cichlids
Distribution West Africa
Temperature 24-26C
Size 16-20 cm
Water Parameters Neutral, not too hard water preferred
Water PH 6.5-7.5
