Hemichromis elongatus

27. May 2014

The Five Star General has a very wide distribution in western Africa and is one of the most beautiful species of cichlid at all. Sadly it is also one of the most aggressive species of cichlid and this is the reason why it is only very rarely seen in aquaria. The photographed specimens originate from the Benue river in Nigeria and are still youngsters.
