Introduction: Welcome to the vibrant world of the Red Fin Kadango, a captivating and lively fish that will add a burst of color and energy to your aquarium. Let’s explore the unique characteristics and requirements of this beautiful species.

Scientific Name: The Red Fin Kadango is scientifically known as Copadichromis borleyi.

Water Quality:

  • Temperature: Maintain a comfortable water temperature between 76°F to 82°F (24°C to 28°C) to keep the Red Fin Kadango active and healthy.
  • pH Level: Provide a slightly alkaline to neutral water with a pH range of 7.5 to 8.5, replicating their natural habitat in Lake Malawi.
  • GH Level: Aim for a General Hardness (GH) of 4 to 8 dGH, suitable for their well-being.
  • KH Level: Keep the Carbonate Hardness (KH) at 6 to 10 dKH for water stability.

Feeding: The Red Fin Kadango is an omnivorous fish with a preference for meaty foods. Offer them a balanced diet consisting of high-quality pellets, flakes, and occasional live or frozen foods like brine shrimp and daphnia to support their vibrant coloration and overall health.

Tank Mates:

  • Peaceful Cichlids: Red Fin Kadangos can coexist with other peaceful cichlid species of similar size in a spacious tank.
  • Avoid Aggressive Species: Keep them away from highly aggressive or territorial fish to prevent stress and conflicts.

Substrates and Tank Decorations: Use a sandy substrate to mimic their natural habitat and create a comfortable environment for digging. Add rocks, driftwood, and caves to provide hiding spots and territories for them.

Suitable Plants: Select hardy and robust plants like Java Ferns and Anubias that can tolerate the Red Fin Kadango’s occasional digging.

Sexing: Sexing Red Fin Kadangos can be challenging, but males may display more intense coloration and slightly larger size compared to females.

Breeding: Setting up a separate breeding tank with adequate hiding spots and smooth rocks is essential for successful breeding. Observe their courtship behavior to detect potential breeding pairs.

Maximum Size and Longevity: The Red Fin Kadango can grow up to approximately 6 to 7 inches (15 to 18 cm) and has a potential lifespan of 8 to 10 years with proper care.

General Information: This stunning fish is named for its striking red finnage, which contrasts beautifully with its blue body, creating a visually captivating display in any aquarium.

A Fun Fact: In the wild, Red Fin Kadangos are known to form schools with other cichlid species, providing safety in numbers and a dazzling spectacle for observers.
