Electric Blue African Cichlid
Great best fish in my tank
I have one of these fish and she is thriving. I have her in a 55 gal with about 14 other cichlids and she is well over 7 inches long even though the website says they only get to 5 inches. Anyway she is very happy in my tank. She is female but has not mouth brooded yet even though some of my much smaller females have already. She is very bright blue (sorry I would sent a Pic but I'm on vacation and my tank isn't with me) and she has developed a few orange spots at the very end of some of her fins. I thought they could be egg spots but I'm certain she's female because she had let one of the males breed with the females and rule the tank and shows no signs of aggression. Since she is so big no fish messes with her and she never messes with any of the other fish. Over all great fish, a little strange, but great fish and everyone who has african cichlids NEEDS to have at least one of these fish:D

Very BEAUTIFUL fish!!!!!!
This is my favorite fish i've had so far. Mine isn't aggressive at all its the nicest fish in the tank.And my little acei cichlid runs the tank and the electric blue cichlid is afraid of it and is very energetic.

My all time favorite fish!!!!!!
I have said this a million times that I had a favorite fish but this time I am serious. this fish is the best fish ever. when I walk out of the room or walking anywhere he will literally try to follow me in his tank what fish does that. he is the law in my tank by protecting my small fish from my other chiliads. if you are an expert on fish get 1 of these and only one because they will kill each other (I made that mistake before) but get these fish
