Flameback Cichlid 5cm
The Flameback inhabits rocky areas of Lake Victoria and is is one of a number of geographic variations of Pundamilia nyererei. It is a hardy undemanding fish but can be territorial, so provide some hiding places. Males are easily noticed by their brighter colours, becoming bright red across their back when mature. Maximum size is about 10-12cm. Many Lake Victorian species are considered threatened in the wild, after Nile Perch were introduced to the lake with devastating effects on its indigenous Cichlids.
