2 x Fairy perch - Neolamprologus brichardi - pair
Fairy bass are extremely attractive fish with a pronounced social behavior. What appears to be "barsch" at first glance is ultimately just clarification of the hierarchy. And yet they are peaceful group fish that lovingly and communally care for their young. With her fins extended and unique spots on her face, the "Princess of Burundi" outshines her fellow fish with just a flap of her fins. An illustrious group of perch is a sight that is hard to walk away from. - Garnelio

Description

One of the most popular and probably most beautiful perches of all, is probably the "Princess of Burundi", the Fairy Perch, also known as Neolamprologus brichardi. This fork-tailed cichlid is endemic to East Africa's Lake Tanganyika, where it inhabits near-shore rocky littoral in strong groups of triple-digit numbers and resides primarily in the lower water zone at depths of up to 10 meters. The habitat is sandy and in places has rocky substrates and superstructures that serve as burrows. There they feed mainly on invertebrates and the young of other fish.

The Fairy Perch exhibits a typically elongated and slightly high-backed perch shape that appears shallowly compressed at the sides. In base color it exhibits an ocher yellow to orange, but also gray. The mouth is terminal. A short dark brown band extends from the eye to the gill cover, but may be spotted, and is interrupted by a yellow-orange spot. All fins, except the pectoral fins, appear transparent in the basic coloration of the perch and show white fin seams. The forked tail is extended. They grow to a maximum length of 10 centimeters and live approximately 9 years. Although the Fairy Perch is territorial, it is still a peaceful fellow that can be well socialized in a group and with other Lake Tanganyika fish. As a first time perch, it is suitable for beginners.

The males differ from the females externally by the extended extended dorsal fin, as well as the extended extensions of the forked tail. However, even this can be ambiguous now and then, so the genital papilla should be consulted to determine sex. Fairy bass are cave-breeding  permanent spawners that can be stimulated to spawn by raising the temperature. Females lay up to 200 wine-red eggs on a cave ceiling, which are guarded by the male after fertilization. After about 72 hours, the first larvae hatch, feeding on their yolk sac and staying in the safe cave for the time being. It is not until almost 1.5 weeks later that the now free-swimming young venture out of the safe refuge into the open water and are cared for by their larger siblings, as well as by the group. The young can be fed freshly hatched Artemia nauplii.

Fairy bass prefer to live in a group of at least 3 animals and therefore require an aquarium of at least 150 liters, which should have a sandy or gravelly substrate similar to their habitat. Stone structures serve as territory marking, visual protection and as a place of retreat. Sufficiently many caves should be paid attention to, in which lower-ranking animals and above all the females, can withdraw. The planting does not play a major role, as less well rooted and finely feathered plants in particular may be dug up and eaten. Perching plants with hard leaves such as Anubia and Bucephalandra are more suitable. The aquarium water should ideally have a total hardness of 9°-20° dGH, a pH of 7.8-9.0 and a carbonate hardness of 15°-20° dKH, with a temperature of 24°-26° C.

Fairy bass are peaceful, but also territorial fish that socialize well with their peers and other Tanganyika cichlids. Due to their natural preference for invertebrates, these should not be added to the perch aquarium, as they will otherwise add to the menu.

These cichlids are carnivores that feed on minute crustaceans and fish larvae in the wild. They can be fed well in the aquarium with granulated food suitable for perch, but also flakes. Variety is provided by large live and frozen foods, which may regularly spice up the animals' usual diet.

Our food recommendation: NatureHolic Cichfeed is a great staple food for all carnivorous cichlids in the aquarium, perfectly meeting their dietary requirements. The tasty pearls are also very well eaten by larger cichlids. Thanks to their soft texture, NatureHolic Cichfeed food pearls are gentle on the mouth and can be eaten very well by the fish.

Our plant recommendation: Use for planting NatureHolic InVitros. These are free of snails, planarians and other unwanted co-inhabitants. Also free of algae spores, bacteria and fungi.

Expert Tip: We recommend for fish keeping the NatureHolic 3 Phase Liquid. The care set offers the best all-round protection for your animals. It ensures optimal conditions for successful breeding and keeping.

Hallo Dirk, vielen Dank fuer deine Frage! Wenn das Becken gross genug ist, es kann zwischen nicht verwandten Paaren zu Streitigkeiten kommen. 

Question: "Hallo, kann ich die Feenbuntbarsche in mein Malawibecken einsetzen? Im Becken sind 5 Tiere der gleichen art. Das Becken fasst 250l Danke"

Hallo Johann, vielen Dank fuer deine Frage! Generell ist das gefaehrlich, da die Tiere abgelehnt und getoetet werden koennen. Wir empfehlen dir einfach zu warten bis deine 5er Gruppe sich fortpflanzt. 

Question: "Hallo ich hätte gern ein Pärchen Feenbarsche. Wenn man 2 Stck.bestellt bekomme ich dann automatisch ein Paar?? Gruß "
