Rift Lake Community – with caution.

The Crimson Tide is one of the few cichlids available from Lake Victoria.  It is quite aggressive for a Hap and this should be considered when deciding what tank mates it is going in with.  Males are highly aggressive during breeding and will defend their territory against any fish that comes within range.They will kill any fish that looks similar or has similar colour. Even in a highly stocked tank they will be extremely aggressive towards the same species and for every male there should be at least 3-5 females due to they chase females relentlessly and can kill them off.
