One of the more rare shellies out there. Males will rarely top over 1.5” in length.
Their striping and coloration is how you can tell them apart from their Neolamprologus multifasciatus cousins, Similis have light stripes on a dark body whereas the Neo. multis have the opposite color pattern.
Similis are not picky eaters, but they are not fond of going to the top to eat, a sinking pellet or flake food released under the water is the best method of feeding. Here we like to give them our Beef Heart Flake and frozen brine shrimp.
A tank with a sand bed and lots of shells for them to hide in and explore is the best set up for these fish.
