• Aulonocara sp. Rubescens (Reuben Red (Germany)

They're back! These are the red color ruby Red/ German Red now brought back through German breeding as Ruben Red. They have not been available commercially for a very long time. I expect this fish to be a top seller. 

Dominant Reuben reds will turn red later on in their life. Sub-dominant males will remain orange. There is a slight difference between the Reuben red and german red strains. The german reds have more orange throughout their bodies, while the Reuben red has bluer faces with a more compacted orange coloration found predominately in the midsection of the body.  Dominant Reuben red males will get a really intense red coloration in the midsection-back of the eye region.

These fish are being grown out from in-store stock 

Reuben Red is a line-bred fish from the Chipola Group of Peacocks. 

Recommended Foods: Recommended Food:  Xtreme Cichlid PeeWee to help color.
