Albino Malawi Eye-Biter : Quick Care Facts
Care Level:Easy
Temperament:Semi-aggressive
Maximum Size:10 ”
Minimum Tank Size:70 Gallons
Water Conditions:76-82° F, KH 10-25, pH 7.5-8.6
The Albino Malawi Eye-Biter (Dimidiochromis compressiceps) grows to about 10 to 11 inches in length and requires an aquarium of at least 70 gallons in size, but does better in a longer aquarium like a 125 gallon. A larger properly aqua-scaped aquarium will provide more suitable territory, which will allow the Albino Malawi Eye-Biter to co-exist more easily with other large African Cichlid tank mates.

Compatibility: Some recommended tank mates include, Malawi Peacocks, mild tempered Mbunas like the Lemon Yellow Mbuna, and Synodontis Catfish, also Cichlids from Lake Victoria, but probably not Cichlids from Lake Tanganyika.

Temperature: Eye-Biter Compressiceps Haps live best from about 75 to 80-degrees F.

Feeding:

Premium Fish Food Pellets is the best food for Cichlids to eat. It would be best to feed them small pellets when they’re small, then gradually increase the size as these fish grow bigger.

Water Conditions: Lake Malawi has hard alkaline water and that’s best for all the fish, whose ancestors lived there.

But these fish can adapt to most types of water, and so as usual it’s best not to try to change the pH or hardness.
