Red Top Hongi are a unique looking Mbuna from Lake Malawi. As with other Mbuna, these can be aggressive and should be kept with other Mbuna type.

These fish tend to like rocky setups for the tank, and the males tend to be larger and more colorful than the females. One thing to know about this fish is that the  coloration of this fish differs depending on its mood. The males are observed to be territorial.

Although the males tend to show more colors, the females will normally show a submissive brownish purple color, although they too can color shift to a marvelous pale lilac, showing off their darkened bars.
