Julidochromis dickfeldi (Dickfeld's Julie)

Streamlined, elongate fish with a yellow body marked with a series of black longitudinal bands. The fins are edged with electric blue. No obvious distinction between the males and females, though the females are said to be larger.


Fish information (behaviour and breeding):

One of the most popular of the "Julies" in the hobby, being attractively patterned and relatively small. Males are territorial and mutually intolerant, but their small size and consequently rather small territories mean that a group can be kept in a large aquarium with plenty of caves. Quite secretive, these fish stay close to the rocks and prefer to feed from the bottom of the tank. Favoured prey items are bloodworms and small crustaceans such as daphnia. Sinking pellets are also accepted. Quite easy to breed, these fish lay eggs inside a cave, both parents guarding the eggs and fry. Highly recommend for the aquarist starting out with Tanganyikans, these fish have proven to be reliable aquarium residents.
