The risk of hybridization with two Aulonocara species is known to me, but as I do not want to breed
this should not be a problem.
Remains to be seen how the aggressions of Aulonocara distribute goats,
currently it funktionierrt very good, should it start, a kind must probably move to my other basins.
The Aulonocara Eureka is a selective breeding from Aulonocara jacobfreibergi Otter Point.
Males 12cm, females approx 9cm
Aulonocara jacobfreibergi among the cave-dwelling Aulonocaras.
He peopled basically two different zones: The southern populations and the Mamalela variant on Undu Reef live in the transition zone, whereas the rest of the northern populations of sediment-rich rocky zone give priority.
But both variants is a strong reference to recognize caves, again a clear differentiation between the Übergangszone- and the rock zone Jacobfreibergis be seen.
The populations in the rock zones prefer large caves, which are also easily shared among multiple blocks, whereas keep those from the transition zone .Rather to smaller columns and this sharen reluctant.
Water depth of jacobfreibergi habitats
All Aulonocara jacobfreibergi populations can be observed in water depths 5-15 meters.
The type described here is one of the carnivorous cichlids.
About the aulonocara-typical sense pits on the head locates A. jacobreibergi invertebrates and crustacean in the sediment, which are then captured by a targeted kick in the sand.
Note: Amazingly, the meaning of the pits jacobfreibergi complex are slightly smaller than those of most other Aulonocaras. The logical assumption that the predominantly living in dark caves species have rather more of these institutions must, in order to better "hear" in darkness can, therefore is not a fact. To assume, therefore, that it is more of in the Jacobfreibergis a Urart the genus Aulonocara, from which the other, better-equipped types have derived in the course of evolution.
Sexual maturity males defend their cave areas regardless of breeding season, which, occupy nearly straight in the populations of the rock zone which inhabit large caves and several bucks together such a cave.
Interestingly, the most popular areas are always close to the cave ceiling, columns or just below it. The females cavort usually at the entrance of such caves and looking in the sandy bottom for food. Only very rarely can be observed on an open sand A. jacobfreibergi.
During the mating the females are lured from the goats in the areas where it is then also spawned - there is no evidence that the males build a special spawning ground, as do so many other ways.
Attitude in the aquarium
For the attitude in the aquarium to replicate a highly structured transition zone with many rocks and caves spacious as possible is recommended in the background. Nevertheless, it must be on free stretches of sand, which are searched in typical Aulonocara-way for food.
The species can be kept in tanks from at least 300 liters.
By unimpressive intraspecific aggression and the fact that several bucks together inhabit a single cavity, a group housing (3m / 6-7w) is highly recommended.
Naturally, the Harem entertainment (1m / 2-3W) is easily possible.

I tried the aquarium set up so that there is a lot of free swimming space for the fish.
Left and right in the aquarium there are small stone constructions, planted with Cryptocoryne aponogetifolia.
These serve as a little privacy for the fish.
Hiding and withdrawal options are plentiful behind the rear wall, there are over the entire length of the aquarium constantly distributed small stone constructions.
Until now the Besatzt harmonizes very well with the establishment, no major aggressions!
A few Rockzolid Stone modules are planned for the future, which should be pasted as overhangs into the aquarium.
For tips and Kretík I am forever grateful !!
