$10.99

Cobalt Blue Cichlid

One of the most popular mbunas due to its solid cobalt blue color and gets along with other zebra cichlids and haplochromis cichlids, but aggressive towards mild-mannered cichlids. Cobalt cichlids are good species for the aquarium, since this pet fish only grows to 3 1/2 inches.

Just as in the wild, these cichlids prefer rocky areas to inhabit and breed. Cobalt Blue, or Cobalt Zebra Cichlids, are mouth brooders and easy to breed.
