The nice highlighted bars make this a popular cichlid to be introduced to the tank. The only thing is they are aggressive and should be kept with other fishes that are able to defend themselves. They go great in a Malawi setup with other Malawi cichlids, also the Crabro has the ability to rapidly change its yellow bar colours into a more uniformed brown.
