Venustus Cichlid

Venustus Cichlid

The Venustus Cichlid is also called the Giraffe Hap due to its unique spotted coloration. They are a moderately aggressive species. In the wild they have a tendency to play dead half covered in the sand waiting to ambush smaller fish. The Venustus Cichlid is not overly demanding of water quality but good water quality should be maintained. Prefers a sandy or fine gravel bottom with several rocky hiding spots and a large open area to swim.
