The Tefe Agassizi’s Dwarf Cichlid are a very beautiful and uncommon variant of the species. Adult males have a great deal of blue and yellow coloration! As with most dwarf cichlids, adult females are less colorful in comparison to males, but still have a good amount of coloration (mainly yellow and black with some red/orange highlights) and have an beautiful appearance with plenty of personality.
The Tefe Agassizi’s Dwarf Cichlid will thrive in an aquarium with a sand substrate and plenty of hiding spots such as caves, driftwood, and rock formations. It is an excellent selection for any planted aquariums, but it also needs a decent amount of open space. These cichlids are generally compatible with other peaceful fish as long as it has plenty of room. Territoriality is typically at its peak during spawning. Dwarf shrimp and other small, delicate invertebrates should not be kept with the Tefe Agassizi’s Dwarf Cichlid, but more durable, larger shrimp and snails could possibly make good tankmates in a large enough aquarium.
