1"+ - Unsexed fish
Rock Kribensis originated from the Southern end of Lake Victoria, Africa.
Our line is the Yellow variant, and are bred in our home breeding facility.
Very active but semi-aggressive, especially when male wants to breed. Prefers lots of rock, caves, or hard scape to allow females somewhere to hide and escape from the male.
Max Size: 4-5 inches
Min Tank Size: 40 gallons
Breeding: Maternal mouthbrooder. Very easy to breed, the female will hold the eggs for 3-4 weeks and will breed every 6 weeks.
Gender Identification: Female is yellow with black stripe, Male can be red, greenish yellow, yellow, and blue. Will have yellow spots on anal fin.
Compatibility: Other African cichlids. Will establish a 'hierarchy' within its own species
Care: Fairly simple. pH: 7.2-8.4. Temperature: 74-78 degrees Fahrenheit.
Notes: One of the few Victorians in which the female is not a bland silvery color. I wouldn't recommend to keep it in communities, as they eat smaller fish. Suitable for Lake Victorian community / similar size cichlids tank mates.
