Specifications

Overview

The Electric Blue African Cichlid creates a gorgeous, colorful focal point in the freshwater aquarium. It has the typical sleek, bullet-shaped body common to the Cichlidae family.

The active Electric Blue African Cichlid seems equally content guarding its territory or perusing the perimeter of your aquarium. Sciaenochromis fryeri does well with other Lake Malawi cichlids when provided with a spacious aquarium of 250 litres or more with ample rockwork.

Although extraneous for the Electric Blue African Cichlid, aquatic plants may be beneficial for other aquarium inhabitants. Keep in mind that Electric Blue African Cichlids larger than 8 cm will often uproot live plants. The Electric Blue African Cichlid can and probably will be aggressive toward smaller fish.

Considered a specialized mouth brooder, eggs of the Electric Blue African Cichlid are fertilized and carried by the female. Within 12 to 18 days, fry are released, measuring 7-8mm. Once released, the Electric Blue African Cichlid fry do not return to their mother again.

Most members of the mouth brooding variety of African Cichlids are easily bred in the home aquarium when given the proper aquarium setup and excellent water conditions.

A small group of five to seven females and one male will provide the best opportunities for breeding the Electric Blue African Cichlid. The Electric Blue Cichlid needs meaty foods such as brine shrimp, bloodworms, and small fish.
