The Electric Blue Ahli Cichlid is one of the more aggressive African cichlids we have observed, and also one of the most beautiful. The "electric blue" portion of the common name for this fish is due to the adult color of the male of the species which is a stunning, deep electric blue. The females have much less color as adults, showing just a slight tint of blue, but more prevalent are the tan pigments. The native habitat of this fish is primarily rocky with a sandy bottom. Like most other African cichlids, live or plastic plants will be dug out of the substrate on a regular basis.
