Specifications

Overview

The Cobalt Blue Zebra Cichlid is also known as the Cobalt Blue Cichlid or Zebra Malawi Cichlid and comes from the rocky shores of Lake Malawi, Africa.

The colouration of the Cobalt Blue is a pale blue background with seven to eight blue-black bars with four orange egg-shaped spots on the anal fin. The Cobalt Blue will do best in a cichlid community aquarium with numerous rocks and caves with a sandy bottom and plenty of places to set up territories.

A laterite-based substrate is ideal for this system as it will help to maintain the necessary high pH and alkalinity. For best results in spawning, the males should be kept with at least three females.

The female will spawn on a flat rock and will take the unfertilized eggs into her mouth and will follow closely behind the male until he releases the sperm to fertilize the eggs.

The female will then incubate the eggs for approximately three weeks before releasing the fry. The fry can then be fed newly hatched brine shrimp, daphnia, or crushed flake food.

The Cobalt Blue should be fed foods rich in vegetable matter such as flake, pellet and leafy seaweeds.
