I personaly have never kept them but i researched them for you, hope it helps. ph 5-6. very soft water. you can easily keep a pair in there. i dont know if you can keep more then two, of that speices. they work great in community tanks they need hiding places. easy to breed. they are dwarf cichlids only attaining a size of 5 inches. african characins work good as tankmates. they like to sift the gravel. i am not sure if that helped at all bye
