Quick Overview

The Blue Neon Cichlid made quite a splash in the late 1980's as a new cichlid introduction to hobbyists. This is one of the most unusual looking cichlids. While most cichlids have a robust look with many being very deep bodied, this cichlid has a long slender streamlined form. Both the male and female of this very peaceful cichlid are gorgeous, with the female being just a bit duller in colour.

BLUE NEON CICHLID

Details

This is a small elongated fish from Lake Tanganyika, Africa. Its attractive appearance with bright blue or purple neon striping on a creamy orange body quickly led to its common names. It became popularly known as the Blue Neon, Neon Cichlid, and Neon Blue Cichlid. They can also be referred to based on their place of origin such as the "Kapembwa" and "Chituta Bay" varieties, and there is a captive bred albino form called the Paracyprichromis nigripinnis "Albino".
