I highly recommend providing a large aquarium with plenty of caves and hiding places for these fish to thrive. Moreover, an aragonite-based substrate should be used to ensure that the necessary high pH and alkalinity levels are maintained. Furthermore, regular water changes and checking the parameters of the water should be conducted to ensure the fish are living in a healthy environment. Additionally, providing plenty of plants and driftwood can help to create a natural and calming atmosphere for the fish.

For successful spawning, it is essential to have the correct ratio of male to female. Ideally, the male should be accompanied by at least three females in order to maximize fertilization. The female will then take the unfertilized eggs in her mouth and follow behind the male until he releases the sperm to fertilize them. After the eggs have been fertilized, the female will incubate them for around three weeks before the fry are released. When the fry are ready, they can be fed small amounts of newly hatched brine shrimp, daphnia, or crushed flake food. It is important to remember to feed the fry in small quantities as they are very sensitive and can easily become overwhelmed. Additionally, the water must be kept clean and the pH levels must be stable to ensure the fry thrive.

The Demasoni Cichlid is a voracious eater and will require a high quality diet to thrive. This includes a mix of vegetable rich foods in the form of flake food, dried seaweed and algae.
