AKA Wolf Cichlid, Guapote, Dow's Cichlid, and Rainbow Bass
Maxium Standard Length: 28"
Temperature: 75 - 82 F
pH: 6.0 - 8.0 (must remain stable but can tolerate a range of ph)
Diet: Live fish, shrimp, worms. once or twice daily
Behaviour and Compatibility: Probably best to be alone or with other Dovii Cichlids depending on tank size.
Maintenance: Needs a rather large fish tank as these fish live for 30 or so years and get very large. They enjoy places to hide but also need a large wide open space to swim. Live plants should either be floating or well anchored. It is recommended to glue any rock structures together as this fish will sometimes knock them over and possibly injur themselves. A 20-30% water change regularly and a big water change of maybe 50 - 60% once a week.
