Description

One of the more peaceful African Cichlids the Moorii gets its name "Blue Dolphin" from its blue colouration and its dolphin face like features as it matures. The blue dolphin Cichlid when young or stressed will show dark blotching alongside its body. As the fish matures the blotching will fade out and males will turn a deep blue with long elongated fins and will develop a large lump "kok" on its head. The females will also show a blue colouration but not as striking as its male partner.. Its not uncommon for dolphins to reach lengths of 6" in the home aquarium and when breeding they can produce well over 100 babies per mouthful.
