Julidochromis ornatus
 

Julidochromis ornatus

Males and females of the ornate julie pair-bond in a permanent, sedate relationship, even when not spawning. They seek out areas of rock with hiding places and shelters where they can reproduce. Several hundred eggs are attached to the roof of the spawning site; the female tends them while the male defends the territory. The fry are free-swimming after 8-10 days, under the watchful eyes of the adults. J. ornatus has three longitudinal bands on a light background. Size: 8 cm.
