Product Description

The Venustus cichlid comes from Lake Malawi, Africa, where it prefers areas with sandy substrates, generally at depths of around 20-75 ft where it hunts smaller juvenile cichlids with a specialised hunting technique. After spotting prey, it will partially submerge itself into the sand and lie motionless until the chosen fish comes within reach. Then it will then dart out of the sand and strike.
In the wild this species can reach a length of 10+”, but generally max out around 9″ in captivity. The Venustus cichlid needs meaty foods such as brine shrimp, bloodworms, small fish, as well as a quality flake or pellet food containing vegetable matter. But under no circumstances should this fish be feed beef heart or other animal meat.
