AULONOCARA  maylandi


Here is a picture of my Aulonocara maylandi male. He is about 1 year old and the full colour isn't developed yet. He is dark metallic blue on the lower half and the top of the head and chrome yellow else where, the dorsal fin being is iridescent  pale blue. The blue on the body is just starting to develop, the head and lips are a lighter shade of blue at the moment. I have had both male and female for about 6 months and this is their first successful spawning they are aprox 1 year old. They both live quite happily in my hap tank amongst 4 Scieanochromis fryeri, 2 Cyrtocara moorii (male and female), a male Cyphotilapia frontosa and a trio of Pseudotrophus socolofi who was too placid for the mbuna tank. When I first got them the male was bullied by the female as she was larger than him, he spent most of the time hiding behind a filter, so I took the female out for a few weeks so he could make a territory and fatten up a bit. Since then he has not had a problem and even gets respect from the eldest male S. fryeri.


My Aulonocara maylandi has produced a brood of around 23 fry pictured here just 1 day after release.
