Lake Malawi Peacocks

Aulonocara or "Peacocks" are a genus of Cichlid found in Lake Malawi. They are known best for their striking colors, making them perhaps the most popular group of Cichlids for hobbyists.

Peacocks exhibit sexual dimorphism, where males display brilliant colors while females are nearly colorless. They are "more peaceful" than other groups of Cichlids but can be aggressive nonetheless. They can be stocked with Haplochromis Cichlids when done properly. We do not recommend stocking them with Mbunas.

Our Hi-Intensity Color Feed is a great food source for them, as well as our Tropical Flake to bring out their best color!
