• Aulonocara stuartgranti Mdoka FlameTail

Aulonocara stuartgranti Madoka (Flame Tail) is the least common of the flame tail peacocks in the hobby. The male face is blue. Most show yellow or yellow-orange on the body. The tail has yellow or occasionally orange with blue. This fish is a close variant of Ngara Flametail (Yellow) from a different location. The photo is a young male from my wholesaler. Mdoka flame tail tends to show color at a younger age than Ngara. 

Occasionally available on a special order list or may be brought into store in limited amounts in 3" or larger males as well when low on Aulonocar Ngara males.

Be sure to sign up for the newsletter in your account (Name, Address, Phone number for shipping purposes) to know when these fish are available. 

Best kept in single males in all-male tanks. 55-gallon or larger tank recommended.  It is hard to beat the color of an all-male African Cichlid Tank.

The best mix of sex for breeding is one male with five or six females. 20-gallon or larger tank recommended.

Recommended foods:  Xtreme Cichlid PeeWee
