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 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.
These fish are no longer carried in-house; but, will be occasionally available on a special order list
see https://www.cichlidsarespecial.com/index.php?route=product/category&path=89 when I am ordering from my wholesaler.
There also is a chance that a few 3-3.5" Males may appear in this fish's listing from time to time as well.
Base Price is a 3" Part Color Male.
