Description

Nimbochromis are fish predators, in nature relying on the camouflage of their strongly patterned markings to ambush prey. These are hardy fish with strong appetites, best kept with other large-growing Rift Lake Cichlids. Venustus are very popular with their bold markings, adult males develop a strong blue colouration with a golden blaze across the back.
