• Aulonocara stuartgranti "Chiwindi" (Blue Neon)

Aulonocara stuartgranti Blue Neon (Chiwindi) males have a blue face with yellow on their body. Faint brown stripes may appear on the body or fade away as well. Their dorsal fin has a bright white upper edge. Blue Neon from this location has yellow on their tail in addition to blue around the edges of the tail. They are a rather attractive and peaceful peacock cichlid. Their yellow is not as bright as Benga/Sunshine but, they provide a nice contrast to Benga in an all-male mixed tank. Blue Neon from this location is not as commonly found in the hobby as those from Undu Point.  Photo from James Bouarouy one of my customers. 

Last, grow out count 05/17/2019. Next, grow out count due 06/07/2019.  Grow out counts are counts of the fish in stock checking for additional males and increases in size. This fish is grown out from in-store fry. 

Base Price is 2.5" Male. 

4" Male in photo. Former Breeder male. 

Peaceful to mildly aggressive Peacock that mixes well with other Peacocks. other than Jacobfreibergi types of a similar color, Haplochromis, milder Mbuna, and milder Lake Victorians in single male tanks. Do not mix different Aulonocara females in the same tank. (See Compatibility Chart)

Best kept in single males in all male tanks, may work in groups of three or more males, though some secondary males may not achieve full color. 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. 

Please note: No sex is guaranteed on sex uncertain fish. Watch for groups with guaranteed males and females for certain sexed fish in a group. Broods are about 50/50.
