• Aulonocara jacobfreibergi Blue (Rare)

Males are light blue with dark blue stripes. Some show a thin yellow or red line on their shoulders and lower fins. A very few may show some green on the lower face like the one in the photo. Their dorsal fin has a white edge and yellow, red, or orange may appear on the rear portion of the dorsal fin as well. Females are cream with brown stripes. This is an older fish that is rarely found in the hobby. The collection point is unsure. My wholesaler claims to have received this fish from Jacob Freiberg years ago. This is one of the calmer Jacobfreibergi types.

 Last grow out count 12/08/2017. Next grow out count due 12/29/2017. This fish is being discontinued from Stock at reduced prices. When it is gone it will be gone since I no longer am using the wholesaler source from which it came. 

Base Price is a 2.5" Male.  

Do not mix with other peacock males with a lot of blue in their color. Mixes well with several other peacock cichlids, Lake Malawi Haplochromis, Milder Mbuna, and Milder Lake Victorians (See Compatibility Chart)
