Neolamprologus Similis : is a small shell-dwelling cichlid endemic to Lake Tanganyika, it is a golden brown fish, with multiple vertical darker stripes, it is a very attractive fish with unique behavior. They are similar to the neolamprolpogus multifasciatus, but get a little larger than multifasciatus (1.25") and Similis (1.75"-2"). The vertical stripes are not present in the multifasciatus head but are present in the Similis. All shell dweller cichlids like nice round snail shells where they can hide and breed. With multiple shell laid out throughout the aquarium, this fish will feel safe and will be interesting to watch. Over time they will breed, form nice small colonies and take care of their young. This fish will do well in aquarium of 10 gallons and up. It is a hard water species that will need a ph of 7.5 and up, temp of 78-80 would be optimal.
