The Spotted/Tropheus Dubossi Cichlid originates from the rocky coastal waters of Northern Lake Tanganyika, Africa. They are a beautiful species and are completely black as a juvenile with many white spots.

As they mature, the spots fade and their head takes on a blue coloration. This variety of Spotted/Tropheus Dubossi Cichlid develops a wide yellow band just behind the pectoral fins. Like other species in the Tropheus genus, they are extremely aggressive towards their own kind, and should be housed in large groups of 6 or more.

They are a very personable fish that do best in a species specific aquarium. The Spotted/Tropheus Dubossi Cichlid should be maintained in an aquarium of at least 200 litres, in a large number of the same species, or with other smaller semi-aggressive Tanganyikan or Malawian cichlids.

Incorporate plenty of rocks and African driftwood in order to build caves. Provide a sandy bottom of aragonite to maintain the necessary high pH and alkalinity.

The Spotted/Tropheus Dubossi Cichlid is a mouth brooder, and breeding is more difficult than most of the cichlids. This is a very slow growing species which may take a few years to reach sexual maturity.

At that time, the males are typically larger than the females, and have a more turned up nose. To increase the chance of spawning, house 5 or 6 females with one male. Provide a number of caves for the pair to choose from, and to reduce aggression.

Incubation occurs in about 28 days. Feed the fry finely crushed flake food for the first few months until they become interested in lettuce or seaweed.

Their diet should be high in vegetable matter. Offer dried seaweed or romaine lettuce on a feeding clip daily, and supplement their diet with a quality vegetable based flake or pellet food.

珍珠蝴蝶起源于非洲坦噶尼喀湖北部的岩石沿岸水域。它们是一种美丽的物种,完全是黑色的,有着许多白点的少年。

随着它们的成熟,斑点逐渐消失,头部呈蓝色。这种珍珠蝴蝶品种在胸鳍后面形成一条宽黄色带。与珍珠蝴蝶属中的其他物种一样,它们对自己的种类非常具有攻击性,应该被安置在6个或更多的大群体中。

它们是一种非常风度翩翩的鱼,在物种特定的水族箱中表现最佳。 珍珠蝴蝶应保存在至少200升的水族箱中,在大量相同的物种中,或与其他较小的半侵略性Tanganyikan或马拉维慈鲷保持一致。

加入大量的岩石和非洲漂流木以建造洞穴。提供文石的沙质底部,以保持必要的高pH值和碱度。

珍珠蝴蝶是一种口腔育雏者,繁殖比大多数慈鲷更难。这是一种生长缓慢的物种,可能需要几年才能达到性成熟。

那时,雄性通常比雌性大,并且鼻子更多。为了增加产卵的机会,容纳5或6只雌性和一只雄性。为该对提供多个洞穴供选择,并减少攻击性。

孵育在约28天内发生。最初几个月喂鱼苗细碎的片状食物,直到他们对生菜或海藻感兴趣。

他们的饮食应该是植物性的高。每天在喂食夹上提供干海藻或生菜,并用优质蔬菜片或颗粒食物补充其饮食。(中文: 英语翻译成中文)
