Tropheus duboisi are the “somewhat different” Tropheus. While the remaining species of the genus Tropheus are hectic, in groups living, always quarreling swimmers, T. duboisi are at least in the nature rather singulary living fish, who are found occasionally also in pairs. They are clearly calmer and also considerably less aggressive than the other Tropheus. Adult animals are blue-black with a cream-colored or yellow, vertical bandage. The young are quite delightful and often let also non-cichlidiots become weak. They look like little goblins, pitch black with a white starry sky pattern. Like all Tropheus species, this one also originates from Lake Tanganyika.
For our customers: the animals have code 580502 on our stocklist. Please note that we only supply wholesalers.
