Located at the northern tip of Nakantenga Island. Found over a heavily silted, rocky habitat. Diet in the wild consists of plankton and algae taken from the rocks.
The aquarium should have plenty of rockwork to provide shelter, territorial markers and spawning sites. Feed a quality cichlid flake/pellet food. Supplement with spirulina flake and on occasion with frozen foods such as krill, brine or mysis.
