    Lamprologus ocellatus "Gold" are shell-dwellers that use round snail shells as breeding locations, sometimes burying the shell in sand to conceal it. In the wild, they occupy shells of snails that have been eaten by Synodontis multipunctatus. Males do grow slightly larger than females, but at a young age it is impossible to tell the sexes apart. 

    Lamprologus ocellatus are more aggressive towards intruders than other shell-dwellers, such as Neolamprologus multifasciatus. They will attack other fish, hands, and tools if they are approached. It is best to keep a small colony of several pairs in a long tank with many clusters of shells. Slabs or large rocks can be used between clusters to break the line of sight. 

    These fish are suggested to be *purchased* in groups of 5 or more due to their social nature.
