The males are about 4-4.5 inches. They really like the baby brine shrimp and frozen blood worms and big brine shrimp. They are a great fish to keep but for lords sake have really good lids on the tank I have had close calls while doing maintenance they jump like rockets.

At feeding time you need to approach the tank and stand still in front of them for about a minute. Make slow deliberate movements. Usually, that settles them down.

May have a female holding....not as pronounced as cyps or mbuna but throat seems expanded and not eating today....my largest female a tad over four inches. The males were nuts today with the pits and dancing around much more than normal....which is a lot. :bananna
