Venustus Cichlid

Venustus Cichlid Care Guide (Nimbochromis venustus)

Venustus Cichlids (Nimbochromis venustus) are good for intermediate-level fish keepers, because despite their simple care needs, they are only semi-hardy. This moderately-aggressive species must have a tank suitable enough for them to swim around in, as they are very active fish. Their dietary needs are easily met, but they can easily become ill if their water conditions are anything but superb. Depending on the bioload, aquarists will need to change their water weekly (minimum 10% to 20%).
