Red Firecracker Tropheus Moorii
The red firecracker tropheus moorii, or tropheus chipimbi, will begin showing color at two inches, though shipping size is normally just around an inch, so please be patient. This fish is territorial but peaceful enough to keep with a community cichlid tank. Slow to grow but hardy, keep the water clean and make sure it has flake food that contains veggies.
