The Makobe Island Nyererei is, in our opinion, the most colorful Victorian cichlid out there!
This cichlid is from the shallows surrounding Makobe Island off of Tanzania. It will only get to be around 4-5 inches when fully grown, but what it lacks in size it makes up for with attitude.
To keep this fish happy you will need to feed a diet consisting of a lot of meat based proteins. Our Plankton Gold will benefit this fish immensely. We also suggest supplementing with frozen brine shrimp and or blood worms.
The Pundamilia Nyererei Makobe can vary in color in the home aquarium. Normally the very intense red color is not seen unless during breeding or in territorial disputes. In order to achieve this bright coloring we suggest picking up a male with a couple females for him to show off for.
