One of our favorite Haps!
Tangerine Tiger are found around the sediment free areas around Likoma island in lake Malawi. Here the can be seen grazing on algae and defending their territories from other fish.
Tangerine Tigers will grow to be around 9”, so they will need a tank that can accommodate this size. We have kept them in smaller tanks as they grow up, but for them to reach their full potential you will want them in a larger tank. A 75 gallon or larger is recommended.
In the wild they are primarily an herbivore, but in the aquarium they will readily except meat based foods as well. Here we feed them a steady diet of spirulina with the occasional treat of Plankton Gold, and frozen brine shrimp.
