|Located at Undu Point in Tanzania. Found anywhere from purely rocky regions to sandy, intermediate zones. Diet in the wild consists of small insect larvae and crustaceans.
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 striking peacock comes in two variations. The first has bright yellow fins throughout, the other, referred to as a mandarin variation, has orange fins throughout.
Keep one male to several females, do not keep with other Aulonocara species as hybridization can occur.
