The moorii seeks out rocky zones with clear water and a supply of algae, and
so requires supplements of vegetable material in captivity. The males will fight
for territory. The female incubates the eggs in her mouth; as they are larger than
those of other species, she can only hold a small number, around 20 at most. The
coloration of juveniles differs from that of adult fish, which, in any case, varies
- as does the exact shape - according to their original habitat. Size: 12 cm.
