Starry Night Cichlid “Bleekeri” (Paratilapia polleni)


This is a beautiful fish from Madagascar. This fish’s color is best presented over a dark substrate. When on a light-colored substrate, it will be lighter in color. They are fairly sedentary and, once paired, are extremely placid, although juveniles can be hard on each other and an adult male will not tolerate a second male, no matter the size of the aquarium. It is interesting to watch them hunt. Suddenly they will lunge and swallow its food in one gulp. They are very interesting fish
