More info

The albino auratus cichlid, known by names such as golden mbuna, golden cichlid, and Malawi golden cichlid in its normal form; is an albino colour variant growing to approximately 4 inches.

Being an mbuna, it is highly aggressive; with males being highly intolerant of tank mates, beyond even normal mbuna aggression levels. It is therefore wise to house them in very large tanks with other cichlids to allow for territorial space, or consider an auratus species tank; with one male to many females. If choosing this latter option, the two sexes will help bring out the colours in each other.

They appreciate a balanced diet from flake, pellet; live and/or frozen foods, its also highly recommended to include vegetable matter in their diet such as spirulina flakes or algae tablets along with other blanched vegetables that may be available.

Regular water changes are important to maintain their overall health and prevent bloating.
