Meet our fish...
Blue

This is not a true picture of our fish Blue.
But it is as close as I could get. I hope to
have His REAL picture up soon.
Malanochromis johannii
AKA:

 Electric Blue Johannii
Bluegray Mbuna



About Our Fish:

Blue got his name because at the
time we got him he was the only
blue fish we had.

Blue is the 1st Cichlid we got. He
got us interested in collecting
other Cichlids.

He is very territorial and has a
very bad attitude. But he is so
pretty that you forget that he
has a mean streak.



This is another pic of a Johannii. Not
all of the males are so brilliantly
blue. Some are more greyish.




Some Fishy Facts

Johanniis are aggressive and very territorial.
They can grow up to 12 cm. or 5 in. and perfer
the middle and lower tank levels. Their diet is
Omnivorous, there fore they enjoy flakes, pellets,
brine shrimp, and live fish.


Johanniis like to live in rocky caves and they
prefer plenty of hiding places. The more the
better since 1 fish usually will claim 2-3
different caves.
