Neolamprologus brichardi is called brichardi cichlid, princess of Burundi and fairy cichlid. This moderately aggressive pale brown cichlid is elongate and has clearly defined scales. A yellow spot and a patch follow the gill cover, and this species has small yellow scales on the caudal peduncle. The lyre tail and some of the extended fins have blue and white edges. Males have more extensive fins than females.
Neolamprologus brichardi occupies the lower level of the aquarium and shoals when not breeding. Keep your brichard cichlids in a small group in a 20-gallon aquarium or larger. Dominant males will claim their territories, and submissive males will try to stay out of their way. As long submissive males do not challenge dominant males, the aquarium will stay relatively peaceful. Provide rocks that form caves and crevices so that there is at least one retreat for each fish. Secure all rocks with aquarium-safe sealant so that they don’t topple over. The Neolamprologus brichardi aquarium should also have open swimming areas.
Feed your brichardi cichlids a carnivorous diet that consists of any type of commercial flake or pellet, as well as small live foods, such as Mysis shrimp, brine shrimp or krill. In the wild, they eat insect larvae, plankton and small crustaceans.
Breeding: While Neolamprologus brichardi is one of the easiest cichlids to breed in captivity, many individuals are still wild-caught. To breed them in captivity, purchase a group of juvenile brichardi cichlids and let them pair up as they become sexually mature. Breeders will lay and fertilize about 100 eggs inside of a crevice or cave. Feed the fry microworms and finely crushed flake food once they become free-swimming. Multiple females can care for the eggs – not just the mother, and older fry can help protect new batches of fry. When it comes to other tankmate species, however, brichardi cichlid parents will aggressively defend their fry, terrorizing tankmates until they cower in the aquarium corners. Therefore, it is best to keep them in a species aquarium, a breeding aquarium or to keep them with large fish that won’t be bullied.
