Stunning Albino Brichardi Cichlid adds a mystical touch to your aquarium. Brichardi Cichlids are known as Fairy Cichlids and this albino variety lives up to that designation.

It boasts elongated tail and dorsal fins and an elegant pink/white colour that provides unparalleled contrast to the hardy plants or rockwork of most cichlid aquariums. Native to the rocky shorelines of Lake Tanganyika in Africa, this fish thrives in aquariums with multiple rock formations and hiding coves.

Though not as active as other cichlids, the Brichardi will dig in substrates and uproot plants. Therefore, care needs to be taken to ensure success of your aquatic plants. Since they are diggers, choose a soft sand or fine gravel substrate.

Interestingly, Brichardi Cichlids are the only known substrate-spawning cichlid that also schools. In the wild, multiple cichlid pairs will rear fry in a collective nursery.

In the home aquarium, successful breeding requires strict water parameters of moderately alkaline, medium-hard water. Pairs of breeding fish form nuclear families. Though more peaceful than other members of the Cichlidae family, Brichardi Cichlids will become territorial during mating.

It is difficult to distinguish male from female on sight alone, however. Usually, the dorsal fin and tip of the caudal fin are slightly longer in males.

For optimal health, feed this omnivorous fish cichlid pellets, flake foods, and frozen foods, such as brine shrimp, mysis shrimp, and Cyclops.
