    ID Cichlid

    Hello. This cichlid is of the family Aulonocara species of Lake Malawi in the south of Africa. I don't see any pictures of this exact color in my book, Author: David E. Boruchowitz "Guide to Cichlids." The closest picture I see would be a Aulonocara hueseri or Aulonocara stuartgranti. The Aulonocaras have verying color differations and can hybrid. I have to say it's a great coloration!!! I love the blue in it.
