The Neolamprologus Brichardi, also known as the Fairy Cichlid is a graceful fish with a body that is elongated with a continuous dorsal fin. The tail fin is lyre shaped and they develop long flowing filaments on all unpaired fins. They reach up to about 5 in length, but can sometimes get a bit bigger in the aquarium reaching up to 6 inches. They can live 8 – 10 years with proper care.
