  1. Diet: Offer a diet of high-quality cichlid pellets, live or frozen foods, and occasional vegetable matter. They are omnivorous and appreciate variety.

  2. Tank Size: A 30-gallon tank or larger is recommended for a pair or small group of Turkana jewel cichlids to accommodate their territorial behavior.

  3. Water Parameters: Maintain stable water conditions with a pH of 7.0-8.0, a temperature of 75-82°F (24-28°C), and excellent water quality through efficient filtration.

  4. Compatibility: Turkana jewel cichlids can be aggressive, especially during breeding. Keep them with similarly aggressive cichlid species in a species-specific or well-structured tank.

  5. Tank Decor: Use rocks, caves, and open swimming areas to create territories and hiding spots. Live or artificial plants can be added but may be uprooted.
