Turkis is an Aulonocara mutation developed originally in Germany.  Males are light blue and turquoise with orangish-red mixed into their body. Females are grey with dull grey stripes. They are one of the more unusual of the Aulonocara Peacocks in color. Turkis males are one of the most colorful fish I have to offer. 

Base price is for a 1.5" Sex Uncertain. These fish are being grown out from smaller sizes obtained from my wholesaler. They are being to spawn. 

The main photo shows the color of this better than the second photo. As one of my customer's told me, "this fish can really light up a tank". 

These fish are best kept in all-male tanks with other peacocks and milder haplochromines.  It is hard to beat the color of an all-male African Cichlid Tank.

The best group for breeding is one male with five or six females. 

The photo image is from the HAAS Swap. I will replace it with one of my own once I get a full-color male that I can photograph.
