This dwarf cichlid is one of the most peaceful dwarf cichlid species and it is a wonderful fish for the planted aquarium! It is also makes for a great breeding project for beginners and experts alike!

The Golden Dwarf Cichlid (Nannacara anomala) is one of the most peaceful cichlid species, even among dwarf cichlids. Mature males display an overall iridescent blue sheen with some yellow fins. Females are more yellow in color, but they display a very attractive checkerboard pattern during spawning. The Golden Dwarf Cichlid is extremely hardy and is very easy to breed in the aquarium.

The Golden Dwarf Cichlid will thrive in an aquarium with a sandy substrate and plenty of refuge such as clay pots, driftwood, and rock formations. It is an excellent candidate for the planted aquarium, but it also needs a fair amount of open space. This cichlid is generally compatible with other peaceful fish as long as it has plenty of room. Territoriality is typically at its peak during spawning. Dwarf shrimp and other small, delicate invertebrates should not be kept with the Golden Dwarf Cichlid, but more durable, larger shrimp and snails could possibly make good tankmates in a large enough aquarium. If spawning is desired, tankmates of other species should be kept to a minimum or avoided altogether.

Feeding is simple for the unfussy Golden Dwarf Cichlid. High-quality dry, frozen, and live meaty foods will all be readily accepted. Supplemental vegetable matter is also required. Quality and variety are the keys to a diet that will ensure that this fish maintains optimal health and coloration.
