Neolamprologus tretocephalus (Five-bar Cichlid)
Very similar to N. sexfasciatus but with 5 bars on the body instead of six. Males are steel-blue with dark blue wedge-shaped bars on the flanks extending upwards onto the dorsal fin and the final bar covers the base of the tail fin. There is also a dark patch between the rather large eges. Fins are edged with electric blue. Females similar but smaller and less vividly coloured.
Fish information (behaviour and breeding):
Typical lamprologines in terms of care and behaviour. Mostly predatory, they enjoy small live foods such as bloodworms and mosquito larvae, as well as frozen substitutes. Also enjoys algae-based flake foods and vegetable supplements such as cooked peas and spinach. Forms stable pairs that hold territories. The male is aggressive and actively guards the nesting area, while the female stays with the eggs. Not difficult to breed, similar to Neolamprologus brichardi in details.
