The Red Dragon Flower Horn Cichlid requires an aquarium of at least 50 gallons, with a sandy bottom, rocks and plenty of hiding places among the rocks. Live plants should be planted in pots to protect the roots from these fish. They are territorial and will eat smaller fish or invertebrates that they can swallow.
The Red Dragon Flower Horn Cichlid is difficult to distinguish between the male and female. The females are typically less brightly colored and smaller then the males. Neutral water with soft to medium hardness, a pH of approximately 7.0, and temperatures of 78-82°F is recommended. Red Dragon Flower Horn Cichlids are open breeders that need well-oxygenated water. They spawn in burrows, laying up to 500 eggs. The fry are well protected by the parents, and once mated, they will continue to spawn once the fry have grown.
The Red Dragon Flower Horn Cichlid is omnivorous and will eat most prepared and frozen foods, including freeze-dried bloodworms, tubifex, and ocean plankton, as well as flake food and Cichlid pellets.
