The Tropheus Duboisi Cichlid is a unique species that require a spacious aquarium of at least 50 gallons in order to thrive. To ensure a healthy environment, keep a large number of the same species, or with other smaller semi-aggressive Tanganyikan or Malawian cichlids. To create a suitable habitat, incorporate plenty of rocks and African driftwood to build caves, as well as a sandy bottom of aragonite to maintain the necessary high pH and alkalinity. Maintaining consistency in the environment is key to ensure the Tropheus Duboisi Cichlid is able to reach its full potential. Furthermore, providing the ideal conditions for the species is essential for their well-being and longevity.

The Tropheus Duboisi Cichlid is an interesting and unique species of cichlid, making it an ideal fish for any aquarist. It is important to keep the ratio of one male to five or six females to promote successful breeding. Additionally, providing plenty of caves and hiding places for the pair is essential to ensure the health and safety of the fish. Furthermore, feeding the fry finely crushed flake food for the first few months after hatching is necessary for their growth and development. With proper care and attention, these cichlids can be a rewarding addition to any aquarium.

A high quality vegetable based food supplement should be offered to your cat on a daily basis, in addition to dried seaweed or romaine lettuce.
