They need a minimum tank size of 30 gallons as they are active fish, they also need a lot of rock work as they like to dart in and out of it.
They are actually not herbivors but omnivores, they need to have a mainly vegetable based diet but it MUST be supplemented with meaty substance (Brine Shrimp, shrimp and squid) occasionally, they will develop health problems if you dont feed them the meat at least twice a month.
They are extremely hard to find and rarely are seen in LFS, and when they do appear, they usually command a high price.
Have a look here
though, if this guy cannot get them for you, then forget it, he is one of the top breeders / importers of Tanganyikan Cichlids in the world.
