One of the most peaceful and hardiest of the Dwarf Cichlids, Nanacara anomalas will make a great addition to any community tank 10 gallons or larger! Males will get an awesome blue sheen across their body that really starts to develop as they mature, while females get an awesome red-orange body with bright red fins! These guys are awesome for anyone looking to breed cichlids, as they are very easy to pair up to mate. Their colors really start to pop as they are ready to breed, so for the best color a pair is recommended. Be cautious when breeding in a tank with other fish however, as the females will defend their nest from other fish and can get slightly aggressive with tank mates.Please read our LIVESTOCK SHIPPING POLICY carefully before placing your order.
