A large and aggressive Cichlid that should be kept one to a tank, and best in a species tank. It will eat any fish smaller than itself and is perfectly capable of tearing apart any fish of similar size or larger. A pair can be considered but must only be kept together in a very large tank.
An unfussy eater, will accept cichlid pellets and live/frozen foods such as silversides, shrimp and krill. Males are highly aggressive towards other males of its own species, especially when in the small confines of a tank. Will predate any other fish in the environment. Feed pellets, frozen foods like silversides and krill, and earthworms on occasion. This fish is a substrate spawner.
