Offering Aulonocara nyassae (Blue Peacock Cichlid).

The Blue Peacock, originating from Lake Malawi is a relatively mild natured African cichlid, showing aggression mostly towards its own species in spacious aquaria. Its recommended to avoid stocking it with hyper aggressive mbuna to avoid stress if housing as a species group, aim to have many females to one male. They accept a wide variety of foods including flake, pellets, live and frozen and do well in slightly harder water as per African cichlid recommendations. Decorate with a sandy substrate and rockwork to allow the fish to establish security, territorial boundaries and stimulation to reflect their natural behaviours. Males can be expected to reach up to 7 inches, with females falling short of that.
