Cynotilapia afra 'White Top' (White-top Cynotilapia)

In good condition the males are dark blue with thin light blue vertical bands on the flanks and between the eyes (but not the rest of the head). The dorsal fin is edged with white and this extends forwards onto the top of the head. The female is silvery with blue limited to the edges of the fins.


Fish information (behaviour and breeding):

A relatively quiet and inoffensive species that fares poorly when kept with more aggressive cichlids. Likes a tank with hiding places and plants for shade. Omnivores, they feed on plankton and algae in the wild but appreciate a variety of foods in captivity. Typical moutbrooder in terms of breeding.
