Dragon Bloods are hybrids of unknown origin, they are not indigenous to the rift lakes of Africa. They are one of the most popular fish in the aquarium hobby and no African cichlid tank is complete without one or two.
Recommended tank mates are peacocks and haps of similar size. A good diet would consist of a good quality cichlid pellet.
As most African Cichlids, the ideal conditions for a Dragon Blood should be at a temperature between 78 - 80 degrees and a PH of 7.8 - 8.0.
