Fish Electric Blue Hap
Product Code : Fish Electric Blue
Brand Name : Fish Electric Blue
The Electric Blue Hap is easy to care for as long as they are not overfed, and the water conditions and tank set up is to their liking. Do not look at the silver colored female and discard the idea of having this fish for a pet. They readily breed and the fry are easy to raise. The brilliant blues of the male more than make up for the lack of color of the females, plus the females are handsome fish in their own right. In fact some females can eventually develop a faded light blue coloring when mature.
The Electric Blue Hap is moderately aggressive and predatory. It will eat any fish small enough to consume. Provide a minimum 55 gallon aquarium that is at least 4 feet long (though 6 feet long is best). Keep one male with several females, 4 or more to prevent spawning stress. They can be housed with other Haplochromis and peaceful Mbuna. They cannot be kept with Peacock Cichlids (Aulonocara species) as the male will kill all Peacock males and hybridize with the females.
