Electric Blue Cichlid

The electric blue cichlid is one of the most popular pet fish from Lake Malawi. These cichlids have a peaceful disposition towards most other African cichlids. However since they look similar to Peacock cichlids the males will fight with the Peacock males for breeding territory. The electric blue cichlid is also called the Hap Blue, and a similar species, the Ahli cichlid, is the same in all respects except that it will grow to eight inches. Both species are called Hap Electric Blues.
