Tilapia buttikoferi (Also known as Zebra Tilapia) is a large African tilapiine cichlid fish that can be found mainly in West Africa, specifically Liberia. They are freshwater fish that tend to live in rivers and streams. People have imported and bred them throughout the world for both aquatic and nutritious purposes.
Tilapia buttikoferi are typically yellow or white with black stripes which can vary from very light to near black depending on the mood of the fish. Their stripes tend to fade as they age. It is a large cichlid, capable of growing up to 40 cm
Tilapia buttikoferi are extremely intelligent and aggressive aquarium fish. Aquarium owners find that they are very active and react to movements outside of the aquarium, including attempts to attack an "invader" through the glass of the tank. It is generally advised not to mix them with other fish, as they can be very aggressive, with few exceptions. They love all foods, and need frequent water changes because they are such big eaters. 


体表从眼睛到尾鳍约有8-10条暗黑色环带绕身。饲养水温24-28℃,饵料有鱼虫、鱼肉、水蚯蚓等。
  水质弱碱性硬水,繁殖水温28-29℃,雄鱼体色鲜艳,背鳍、臀鳍末梢尖长,雌鱼色淡,属口孵卵生鱼类
  注:性情暴躁,会攻击金鱼、血鹦鹉、地图鱼等等中型鱼及小型鱼,甚至导致惨死,非常不适合混养。
  十间鱼繁殖
  十间鱼繁殖与普通慈鲷鱼没什么不同。
  产卵后,可以让亲鱼照顾鱼卵,也可以把亲鱼捞出来,让卵自行孵化。
  如果是自行孵化,应该及时把发白的未授精卵吸出来,以免污染水质。
  刚从鱼卵中孵化出来的仔鱼,体质娇嫩而且虚弱,经不起水流的激烈涌动,更经不起外部环境突然变化的冲击。所以仔鱼在生长初期的水温应保持恒定。仔鱼的开口饵料采用蛋黄水。一周后,改投喂50网目具过滤后的小鱼虫。仔鱼生长初期,要保持水质稳定,减少新水刺激。所以投喂时要注意投喂量,观赏喂食后的仔鱼,如腹部鼓起呈蛋黄肉色,水中无剩余残饵,水质依旧清新透明,表示投饵正常。如水中有残饵,水质极易变坏,可用吸管将缸底污物吸出,再沿着缸壁慢慢注入同温度同性质的新水,以保持水质清新透明。
  注:如果是单养的十间鱼在快要繁殖的时候先用挡板隔开几天,培养鱼之间的感情,否则鱼之间会打架导致惨死.
