The Electric Blue Hap is found throughout Lake Malawi, although it is not a commonly encountered fish. Here, this piscivorous species is found in the intermediate habitat, where rocky shores give way to open expanses of sand. The aquarium should be at least 5ft long and aquascaped with open expanses of sand in addition to rocky areas and some thickets of Vallisneria. Decor such as ocean rock can be used to build sturdy structures which stretch from the base of the tank to near the surface of the water. 


Because these fish can get relatively big and aggressive, it's recommended to start with a minimum tank size of 75 gallons (283.9 L). They will appreciate a sand substrate with lots of large rocks that create crevices for these fish to establish territories in.


Worms (earthworms, bloodworms, Tubifex worms), brine shrimp, and krill should regularly be given; additional frozen foods, like shellfish and fillets of fish, may also be supplemented. It is recommended to feed a high-quality fish food flake or pellet as the staple of the diet.

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.
