The Chilotilapia Rhoadesii is a hardy fish that thrives in group, and make a really nice addition to a tank that needs schooling fish. The males have a brillient blue shine on their head making them a fairly attractive display fish. They are best kept with less aggressive cichlid but be wary these guys do grow pretty big in the end. Overall a great fish to keep and raise and great for beginners into the world of African Cichlids.
