The Neolamprologus brichardi is a unique and beautiful fish.

The beauty is not necessarily from stunning colour, but rather their long and graceful filaments that adorn the unpaired fins of the adults. A fine specimen of N. brichardi will also have a beautiful blue pattern on its cheeks.

Neolamprologus brichardi occupies the lower level of the aquarium and shoals when not breeding. Keep your brichard cichlids in a small group in a 20-gallon aquarium or larger.

Provide rocks that form caves and crevices so that there is at least one retreat for each fish. Secure all rocks with aquarium-safe sealant so that they don’t topple over.

Feed your brichardi cichlids a carnivorous diet that consists of any type of commercial flake or pellet, as well as small live foods, such as Mysis shrimp, brine shrimp or krill. In the wild, they eat insect larvae, plankton and small crustaceans.
