Water parameter's (Hardness, gh,kh,) and diet's are a couple to be considered.
African's may need substrate to increase hardness? and African's need a more Herbivorous type diet.
Too much animal protein For African's often contributes to digestive problems,bloat.
South American's often prefer water a bit softer than African's would enjoy(thrive in ).
