Description

Tropheus is a small genus of at least six species of cichlids endemic to Lake Tanganyika in East Africa. The genus is widespread across all regions of Lake Tanganyika, from Burundi in the north to Zambia in the south. Males and females are relatively similar in color, with only subtle sexual dimorphisms  in the form of the male's larger size. All species are maternal mouthbrooders with the females caring for their eggs and fry in their mouths; this characteristic provides their generic name, Tropheus, which comes from the Greek trophos, which means "to nurse" or, according to Boulenger, "one who rears, brings up, educates". Wikipedia

Tropheus duboisi ,the young of this species are stunning, with a patterning of white or light blue spots on a jet black body. This coloration fades to a blue-black with a yellow or white vertical bar on the body as the fish mature.

It will accept most foods offered but vegetable matter in the form of spirulina flakes, blanched spinach, nori etc. should form the basis of the diet. This can be supplemented with small feeds of live and frozen varieties. Never feed beefheart or any other animal meat as it interferes with the digestive system of these fish. Seriously Fish.
