The average adult male is 4 inches.  Males are bright blue and brown while females are silvery. To keep these fish in captivity the water should be kept at about 77ºF with a pH between 7.8 and 8.6. The aquarium should be large and have a sandy substrate with plenty of rocks and caves. They are quite aggressive with their conspecifics, even females, and will also be aggressive with species that have the same size and colors as them, so it is best to only keep them in a community aquarium if their tankmates are extremely different from them. They can be kept as a group as long as there are several females to just one male.

Requirements

Blue Neon Peacocks are native to the hard, alkaline water environment of Lake Malawi in Africa. A home aquarium should provide a similar environment for these fish to display their brightest colors. The substrate iconshould be sand or fine gravel and there should be plenty of rocks to create caves and passageways for the fish to claim territories or seek protection. The water temperature should be between 78 - 82°F with a pH between 7.8 - 8.6. Additives like Cichlid Lake Salt and Malawi/Victoria Buffer will condition the aquarium water for African cichlids.

Diet

Blue Neon Peacock cichlids are carnivores and should be fed a diet that contains a good amount of protein. A good mix of plankton based flakes and commercially prepared cichlid pellets iconalong with live (or frozen) brine shrimp or blood worms iconwill provide these fish with a healthy diet. Such foods will help bring out their bright blue and yellow colors.

Shipping & Returns

Our Koi can now be delivered via Courier. Fish are delivered in an Oxygenated box, costing £25 per box.
For fish up to 6 inches we can fit 6 in a box, but the very large Koi would need a box of their own.
