• Artistochromis Christyi (Malawi Hawk)

This fish is normally only available through my special order list. see https://www.cichlidsarespecial.com/index.php?route=product/category&path=89 when I am ordering from my wholesaler. These fish are slow to color and may not show full color until 5" or larger. Photo from Brinton Schlegel one of my customers. 

Occasionally I may bring some of these fish in-house in 3" or larger males depending on demand. 

Single males work best in a larger tank of 120 or larger, but can sometimes be kept in a 90-gallon tank with other larger haps and peacocks. They may become aggressive toward smaller milder fish when they reach larger adult sizes.  

There also is a chance that a few 3-3.75" Part Color Males may appear in this fish's listing from time to time as well.

Base Pirce is set to a 3" Little Color Male

Best kept in single males in all male tanks.

Best mix of sex for breeding is one male with five or six females in a larger tank (120 Gallon or larger).
