Tropheus Moorii Ilangi
The tropheus moorii ilangi, or firecracker tropheus, is called the “king of the tropheus” because this species may be the rarest and prettiest of all Lake Tanganyikan species. The llangi come from a small bay of Lake Tanganyika are are difficult to breed mouth brooders. In the wild these colorful fish live in colonies of about 20 adults. All tropheus cichlids are herbivores and need veggies but will eat frozen foods from time to time. This fish is territorial but peaceful enough to keep with a community cichlid tank. Slow to grow but hardy.
