You should keep one Lamprologus congoensis male together with several females. They are rather aggressive to each other, but when you have made enough caves where they can hide they make not very much problems. The aquarium should be set up with stones, driftwood and some hard plants, so they can make a territory.
This species was first described by Schilthuis in 1891.
Synonyms: Lamprologus congolensis, Acanthochromis seminudus, Lamprologus fuscus.
They are omnivorous. You should give them a great variety of live, frozen and dry food.
Breeding Lamprologus congoensis
Breeding Lamprologus congoensis is rather easy. Up to 80 eggs are laid in a cave. At a temperature of 26°C (79°F) the eggs hatch after 2 days, and 8 days later the young fishes are swimming free. The female cares for the fry and the male defends the territory.
