Haplochromis or "Haps" as they are commonly referred to, is the largest genera of Cichlids, with many species residing in Lake Malawi. Similar to Peacocks, they display wonderful color and are sexually dimorphic--males display color while females do not.
What sets Peacocks and Haps apart is size, with some species of Haps growing well over 9 inches! This in conjunction means their color will not be displayed until they are well over 4 inches in length.
Our Hi-Intensity Color Feed is a great food source for them, as well as our Tropical Flake to bring out their best color!
