Demasoni are Mbunas, which is a large family of Cichlid fish that originally lived only in Lake Malawi in East Africa.In aquariums a Demasoni can grow to be 3" long, including their tails, which is a very nice size for aquariums. Rarely does a Demasoni grow longer than 4". Demasoni are usually very aggressive fish and from time to time males have long energetic fights. Recommended tank mates for Demasoni include, other Mbuna species and Synodontis Catfish. Ideal water temperature would be 78 Degrees. Mbunas will eventually need to live in an aquarium with at least 80-gallons of water. Each Mbuna will need at least 5-gallons of water, and live best in an aquarium with at least 15-other Mbunas of about the same size. Mbunas do not need gravel, and a layer of gravel more than 1/4" thick will usually fill with bits of uneaten food that will contaminate the water. Live plants are beautiful and improve the water quality, but Mbunas will usually dig plants up, so most Mbuna aquariums do not have live plants, Mbunas love rocks and rocky caves. The addition of Lava Rocks will keep nitrates in the ideal range.
