Copadichromis azureus (Haplochromis chrysonotus, Cyrtocara azureus)

Often sold under obsolete or spurious Latin names such as Haplochromis chrysonotus and Cyrtocara azureus. Males are brilliantly coloured, rich metallic blue with darker blue vertical bands. Females and immature males are silvery with three dark spots on the flanks, and have less elongate fins.

Fish information (behaviour and breeding):

Relatively peaceful maternal mouthbrooders. These fish are active swimmers and like to dig! Wild fish feed primarily on plankton, but in captivity they will eat live, frozen, and dried foods of all types. Keep with other Malawi cichlids of comparable temperament.
