Trade names and synonyms
Regan's Julidochromis, Kilpili regani.
Maximum size 13-15 cm (5-6 in.), males a bit smaller.
Shrimp mix, cyclops and brine shrimps.
Minimum 200 litres (45 gal.).
A substrate spawner which is easy to spawn. The best way to spawn it is in a separate breeding aquarium with only one pair of fishes.
Julidochromis regani is rather aggressive against equals and needs a tank arranged with many caves and hiding-places. All Julidochromis are sensitive against too big waterchanges, well established breeding-pairs can split up.
Because of that you should change a small amount of water regularly, about 10-15% of the quantity each time.
Found all around the Lake Tanganyika in different geographical variants. The most popular variant with blue seams in the fins is found around Kipili in Tanzania.
