Further information:
This is my first Tanganjikabecken. The Neol. Caudopunctatus has me very intrigued. I have therefore informed me in detail of the nature and hope to meet the needs. So far, they seem to feel very comfortable. Aggressions keep very limited. Even with the Altolamprologus there is no problem, since this also is not very aggressive. They swim together peacefully.
N.Caudopunctatus shows to threaten or impressing an interesting color change in From a stripe pattern. This can be seen in my video.
N.Caudopunctatus is a cavity nesters, which occurs in the southern part of Lake Tanganyika on the coast of Zambia in the rock-sand transition zone. It reaches a size of about 7 cm, with females stay somewhat smaller. Adult males are also recognizes a thin yellow margin on the tail fin. The fish also take large snail shells as breeding cave. Outside the entrance, a pile of sand is dug to camouflage. It is a peaceful area realtiv forming species, the space requirements are relatively low.
