The Snow White Cichlid is the albino version of the Blue Pindani which is endimic to Lake Malawi. It occurs along the coast of Mozambique, between Cobue and Tumbi point, although it has been introduced elsewhere. It inhabits relatively shallow water in the intermediate zone where the rocky shoreline gives way to sandy substrates. Live robust plants can be used as this fish will not usually bother them. Leave open swimming areas.
The Snow White Cichlid is among the most peaceful of Pseudotropheus species. Although territorial, this fish does well with peaceful mbunas and Peacocks.
They will readily eat most cichlid pellets, flake and frozen foods.
