Aulonocara Maulana Bi-Color males are blue with a yellow shoulder. They also have darker blue stripes on the body. Females are cream with brown stripes. This fish naturally occurs in the lake and is not a hybrid. The 500 sometimes used in its name can cause confusion. Named after Alfred Maulana of Stuart Grant's dive team, these fish are part of the Stuartgranti group of peacocks.
