|Located around Mbenji, Maleri Islands, Nkhomo, Eccles Reef. Found over the sandy parts of the intermediate zone, in addition to the open water. Diet in the wild consists of plankton.
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.
In my opinion, this fish develops the most striking blue of all Malawi cichlids!
