Remarks: Males will have longer, pointed fins and more color. They have a brilliant rusty-gold color over their scales with lots of color in the fins. Females will turn yellow with black fins when in breeding dress. A sandy substrate is preferred. The tank should be furnished with several caves or nooks to protect and spawn in. Cichlid caves, overturned flower pots, and leaf litter work well.
Breeding is achieved by feeding live baby brine shrimp to an adult pair and providing a proper tank setup. Fry are guarded by one or both parents for several weeks. Dither fish such as small tetras and livebearers can be used to provide parents with targets to chase.
