Sand Digger Cichlid / Fossorochromis rostratus 2"
Fossorochromis rostratus is a large Haplochromine from Lake Malawi, and it requires a tank of 100 gallons or more. Sand is a necessity as these fish spend a considerable amount of time sifting for microorganisms in the sand, as well as diving into sand when startled. They are not considerably aggressive, except towards each other when males are attempting to court females.
