The Dwarf Jewel Fish (Butterfly Cichlid) is a pleasant, peaceful fish who some say share a similar temperament of a Kribensis cichlid. These fish are recommended for community tanks, although from time to time a pair of Dwarf Jewel Fish may have an altercation. If this occurs, one should be removed as they do become territorial during spawing. This fish is best suited for an African River community tank.

Size at shipping: about 1+”
