  1. Tank Size: Provide a tank of at least 20-30 gallons for a pair or small group of Calvus Cichlids, but larger tanks are preferable for maintaining social harmony.

  2. Water Parameters: Maintain stable conditions with a temperature range of 75-80°F (24-27°C), a pH level of 7.5-8.5, and moderately hard to hard water, resembling Lake Tanganyika's water chemistry.

  3. Filtration: Effective filtration is crucial to maintain water quality and oxygenation. Calvus Cichlids are sensitive to poor water conditions.

  4. Aquascape: Create an environment with plenty of rocks, caves, and hiding spots to mimic their rocky habitat in Lake Tanganyika. Provide open swimming spaces.

  5. Tank Mates: Calvus Cichlids can be territorial and aggressive, especially when breeding. Keep them with other peaceful Tanganyika cichlids of similar size and temperament.

  6. Diet: They are carnivores, preferring high-quality cichlid pellets, live or frozen foods like small fish and shrimp, and occasional protein-based offerings.
