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.
