Scientific Name: Simochromis babaulti (Zambia)

Simochromis babaulti are a very lively group of cichlids and if you do not have the proper accommodation for them then they will drive you insane and sooner then later kill each other. But if you like life in your tank and constant movement, these fish are surely for you. When given enough space, Simochromis is a delightful fish to watch and if kept together with the right company, you will not be disappointed. So don’t be scared of them and give them a try.

Was on Red List but put as LC (least concern) in 2006
