fossorochromis rostratus


Recommended Posts

just wanted to know if anyone out there is keeping and breeding these at the moment.

what is the ideal tank size for these guys?

i have read about people keeping and breeding them successfully in standard 4ft tanks.

that doesnt seem right to me personally.

We used to have them.

They are an awsome fish and mouthfulls are massive.

I would say 4ft x2 would be minimum. 5ft + would be much better as males like to make a nest to lure females.

The males turn the most amazing glitter colour and get big.

Well worth keeping them.

Oh they are also pigs and eat alot of food. So it is good to keep filteration turn over high.
