The Fire Blue Ndiwe cichlid (Protomelas taeniolatus) is the perfect addition to any Peacock or Hap tank. Their deep blue bodies and orange trim on the anal fin are brilliant to observe. These Haps are opportunistic feeders in the wild and will happily take anything offered in captivity.

They are extremely common in Lake Malawi, and are often found in rocky habitats near the shore. This variant is reportedly from Chinyankwazi Island near Makanjila Point. Tanks should be furnished with at least some rocks to make them feel comfortable. They can reach up to 7" in the wild, but they can grow larger than that in captivity. Despite this relatively large size, they remain docile and only assert their dominance when breeding.
