Tilapia buttikoferi is an African tilapiine cichlid fish that can be found mainly in West Africa, more specifically Liberia. They are freshwater fish that tend to live in rivers and streams. People have imported and bred these fish throughout the world for both aquatic and nutritious purposes.
Tilapia buttikoferi is an extremely intelligent and aggressive aquarium fish. Many owners of these fish love them because they are very active and react to movements outside of the aquarium and it would not be advised to put another fish in the same tank with this species. This species is generally not picky about its environment. They require tanks of at least 100 gallons, and temperatures of about 75-80 degrees Fahrenheit. They love all foods, and need frequent water changes because they are such big eaters.
