Male Steatocranus grow a bump on their head, contributing to its common name, the Buffalo Head, or Blockhead Cichlid. Coloration ranges from silver to gray with slight iridescent coloration on the flanks.



This fish is rather timid and shy and will typically find a favorite spot and remain in or near that locale. Males can be aggressive with each other, and territoriality could cause minor aggression towards other tankmates as well. Tankmates can range from slightly aggressive cichlids to peaceful barbs, rainbows, and other similar fish.



This fish spends most of its time on the bottom, and it likes sandy substrate and lots of water movement. Decor can consist of rock caves, driftwood, and plants. This fish will accept a wide variety of foods including frozen, flake, and pellet.
