Look no further for a peaceful community freshwater fish, the Ellioti cichlid is what offers that. I have raised fry from birth and all healthy, it's good to see fish grow from baby to adults. Kept in moderately hard water (London) and bred in tap water with water conditioner. Males generally have brighter colours, and both sexes have brilliant finnage.
