Cunningtonia longiventralis (Featherfin Cichlid)

A variable species, but typically the males are blue and the females silver, and the males have longer pelvic fins.


Fish information (behaviour and breeding):

A fairly unaggressive maternal mouthbrooding species that should only be kept with other relatively mild species. Do not mix with aggressive fish such as mbuna. Males are territorial among themselves, and only one fish within the group will adopt its full colouration. Subdominant males retain the colouration of immature fish, and resemble females. Featherfins are somewhat delicate fish and need plenty of swimming space and excellent water quality.

Family Group: African Cichlids
Distribution Lake Tanganyika, Africa
Temperature 23-27C
Size 15 cm
Water Parameters Hard, alkaline water essential
Water PH 7.8-9.0
