Sexual Differences Male develops blue in head, body and fins. A white blaze develops along the dorsal fin and down the head. Dorsal fin may show red, orange or yellow over the blue. Female remains silver; however mature females may show slight hints of blue in the head, body and fins.
General Information Located throughout the lake. Found in a variety of habitats, all contain rocks. Often found in caves or hiding in cracks in the rockwork. Diet in the wild consists of small fish.

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.

Same as the regular S. fryeri but has a white blaze along the dorsal fin to all the way down the head. A stunning looking fish!! Occurs naturally in the lake.
