Availability: In stock

The Peacock Cichlid or Aulonocara is endemic to Lake Malawi in East Africa. They are best kept with other non aggressive Cichlid from Lake Malawi and look spectacular in groups


Peacock Cichlid Known as Aulonocara is a genus of haplochromine cichlids endemic to Lake Malawi in East Africa. All Aulonocara species are all maternal mouth brooders. Particularly in the aquarium hobby, Aulonocara species are also known as peacock cichlids, aulonocaras or simply "peacocks". This genus is strongly sexually dichromic, even by haplochromine standards. As aquarium fish, they are best kept with other medium sized non-aggressive cichlids from Lake Malawi. Decorate the aquarium with a lot of open space for the Aulonocaras to swim in and a lot of caves where fish can hide, rest or establish territories. Only keep one male unless your aquarium is large enough to support several territories.

Hardy and colourful
I bought these fish in 2011, and they grew well and full coloured. I am definitely a big fan now of Peacocks. they are good community fish with electric yellows, electric blues, but my 10cm peacocks would eat my demasoni. I saw one hanging out of his mouth. my peacocks became very large. good brooders, males get a bit territorial during breeding but not as bad as my Blue zebra, bullies they are, wont buy any more blue zebras although they are a beautiful fish, too mean for community. Peacocks, yes I am back to buy alot more.

FANTASTIC! Beautiful colour, beautiful healthy fish. We ordered two large peacocks; and within a day of receiving them had ordered another we were so impressed. Because we have a tank that hadn't had new additions for quite a while, we lost one through bullying, but the other two have settled in well - so much so that we now have a brooding female peacock.
