One of the most colorful and rare lethrinops species. Males have blue on the lower portion of their face. Yellow appears on the top of their head and body. Kande has a red tail with a large dorsal fin with red mixed into it. The upper edge of their dorsal fin is light blue with some red mixed into the top edge. Anal fins are orange with multiple egg spots.

Best kept in single male mix tanks with other milder peacocks and Lake Malawi Haplochromis or in single-species tanks. 

Lethrinops work best with milder peacocks and milder haps. See compatibility chart. 

A group of one male with five to six females is best for breeding. 

These fish are grown out from smaller sizes obtained from my wholesaler or purchased in 3" or larger males from my wholesaler. I hope to breed this fish on my own in the future.
