The Flag Cichlid is a relatively peaceful dwarf cichlid which can be kept in a community aquarium. Pairs will become territorial during breeding, although this is normally directed towards other Flag cichlids. Provide caves and areas to hide and ideally, some vegetation. Good water quality is required for long term health and regular small water changes will benefit the fish. A few naturally occuring colour variations are available.
