(Julidochromis marksmithi)

8 In stock

Remarks: Julidochromis marksmithi used to be known and exported as Julidochromis regani "Kipili", J. ornatus "Kipili", or simply J. sp. "Kipili". In 2014, scientists formally described the fish as a separate species, making it the newest species of Julidochromis and the first to be described since 1975! 

They sport a yellow torpedo-shaped body with several horizontal black bars and blue fringe on the unpaired fins. They inhabit rocky areas of the lake and can often be seen hovering upside-down below a rocky outcropping. Julies make for an excellent candidate for a breeder looking to try Tanganyikan cichlids, as they are cave spawners and tend to produce quite a few fry, which they raise for several weeks. Sexing is nearly impossible, so young groups should be kept together until they pair off.
