Males have a blue face with light orange on the body and tail. A bright Orange Shoulder and Blaze on the head make this fish special. The dorsal fin is mostly light orange with a mix of light blue and with black and white upper edges. Their tail has black edges on the top and bottom. The anal fin is mostly black with a bright orange lower edge.

I just brought these into stock. This fish is peaceful and shy. They can be mixed with milder Peacocks and Lake Malawi Haplochromines in a single male tank but may hide color until comfortable. They are best kept in species-only tanks.
