The Tropheus Duboisi Cichlid originates from the rocky, coastal, waters of Northern Lake Tanganyika, Africa. They are a beautiful species & are completely black as a juvenile with many white spots. As they mature, the spots fade & their head takes on a blue coloration. This variety of Tropheus Duboisi develops a wide yellow band just behind the pectoral fins. Like other species in the Tropheus genus, they are aggressive towards their own kind, & should be housed in large groups of 6 or more. They are a very personable fish that do best in a species specific aquarium.
