Male develops light blue throughout entire head, body and fins. Some yellow speckles throughout fins. Lots of small yellow eggspots on anal fin. Females silver.
Located throughout the lake. Found in sandy habitats. Diet in the wild consists of small invertebrates found in the sand.
The aquarium should have some rockwork but still provide open swimming space both along the bottom and mid-tank region. Feed a quality cichlid flake/pellet food, supplement occasionally with frozen brine, krill or mysis.
This is the largest Aulonocara. It has a pointed snout making it appear quite different from other peacocks.
