This West African native is considered Semi-Aggressive, meaning that for the most part it will keep to itself and the territory it claims in an aquarium rather than roaming through the tank picking fights. When spawning this fish prefers to lay its eggs on a flat rock, so if attempting to breed the Turquoise Jewel it would be best done in an aquarium with some slate rock available to the fish.
