The Fryeri African Cichlid creates a gorgeous, colorful focal point in the freshwater aquarium. It has the typical sleek, bullet-shaped body common to the Cichlidae family. The active Fryeri African Cichlid seems equally content guarding its territory or perusing the perimeter of your aquarium.
They do well with other Lake Malawi cichlids when provided with a spacious aquarium. Although extraneous for the Fryeri Cichlid, aquatic plants may be beneficial for other aquarium inhabitants. Keep in mind that Fryeri Cichlids larger than three inches will often uproot live plants. The Fryeri Cichlid can and probably will be aggressive toward smaller fish.
Considered a specialized mouth brooder, eggs of the Fryeri African Cichlid are fertilized and carried by the female. Within 12 to 18 days, fry are released, measuring 1/4 inch. Once released, the Fryeri Cichlid fry do not return to their mother again. Most members of the mouth brooding variety of African Cichlids are easily bred in the home aquarium when given the proper aquarium setup and excellent water conditions. A small group of five to seven females and one male will provide the best opportunities for breeding the Fryeri African Cichlid.
The Fryeri Cichlid needs meaty foods such as brine shrimp, bloodworms, and small fish.
