    The Electric Yellow are freshwater perciform fish, peculiar cichlids native to Lake Malawi, Africa. Their bodies are strikingly bright yellow, with males having dark blue streaks on their dorsal, pelvic, and ventral fins. Females, who bodies are not as bright yellow as males, also have blue-streaked dorsals, and light charcoal-coloured markings on their pelvic and ventral fins. In their natural habitat, Electric Yellow grow to about 9 cm in length, and have been known to reach 15 cm in captivity.



    This cichlid is also known as the "blue streak hap", the "electric yellow African", as well as "Utaka" (in Malawi), and is called the "yellow prince" in the Philippines. They are endemic to the northern coastal region of Lake Malawi, especially the Nkhata Bay area, in East Africa. It has become a popular commercial fish for aquarium enthusiasts.
    This species is a Mouthbrooder, meaning the larvae may be temporarily scooped up into the parents' mouths for protection. These fish are breeding ovophiles, whereby the male will excavate a pit in the sand within his territory, in which to deposit his eggs; the female then takes these eggs into her mouth for fertilization.
    These cichlid are peaceful compared to most other African cichlids. However, due to their aggressive nature toward non-cichlids, they can be dangerous to many standard freshwater aquarium dwellers. In an aquarium setting, these fish thrive when provided numerous hiding places, such as rocks, plants, and caves.
    Their diet consists with some small live food , Exp. brine shrimp, bloodworms, and regular cichlid pellets. An abundance of brine shrimp is known to keep them bright and, in good lighting, to appear neon-like (hence the name Electric Yellow).

Fish Data : Johanni Cichlid



Minimum Tank Size: 50 gallons
Care Level: Easy
Temperament: Aggressive
Water Conditions: 76-82° F, KH 10-15, pH 7.8-8.6
Max. Size: 5"
Color Form: Blue
Diet: Herbivore
Origin: Africa - Lake Malawi
Family: Cichlidae
    This Cichlid is a very colorful, active fish from Lake Malawi in Africa. The coloring of both the male and female is very appealing, and they almost look like two separate species. The male has a brilliant blue body with darker blue striping, but the dark colors "bleed" onto the lighter blue creating a checkerboard effect. The female and juveniles are a bright yellow-orange.
   This cichlid belongs to a group called Mbuna cichlids. This group has 13 genera of very active and aggressive personalities of Mbuna cichlids. The name Mbuna comes from the Tonga people of Malawi and means "rockfish" or "rock-dwelling". This name aptly describes the rocky environment these fish live in as opposed to being open water swimmers like the Utaka cichlids and other "haps" . Some other common names this fish is known by are Johanni Cichlid, Blue Johanni, Bluegray Mbuna, and Blue Mbuna.
    The Blue Johanni are very attractive African cichlids, and having opposite coloring makes keeping both sexes in the aquarium desirable. Though still not a community tank specimen with fish other than cichlids, they are some of the least aggressive of the Melanochromis species. They are very easy to breed and the juveniles are very easy to raise as well.
A large aquarium with plenty of caves and hiding places is ideal for these fish. An aragonite-based substrate is recommended in order to maintain the necessary high pH and alkalinity.
    The males should be kept with at least three females. The female will spawn on a flat rock, and will take the unfertilized eggs into her mouth and will follow closely behind the male until he releases the sperm to fertilize the eggs. The female will then incubate the eggs for approximately three weeks before releasing the fry. The fry can then be fed newly hatched brine shrimp, daphnia, or crushed flake food.
     The Blue Johanni can be fed with some of vegetable rich foods in the form of flake food, dried seaweed and algae.

Fish Data : Electric Blue Cichlid





Common Name(s): Electric Blue, Electric Blue Hap

Scientific Name: Sciaenochromis fryeri

Origin(s): Lake Malawi (Africa)

    These fish is a popular aquarium fish due to its colouration. because of its intense electric blue coloring. However it has an amazing history of repeated ms-identification. it was first imported for the aquarium hobby as Haplochromis jacksoni. This was quite confusing since these are two totally different species. Then finally it was officially described by AD Konings in 1993. These fish are Haplochromine cichlids endemic to Lake Malawi and one of four species in the genus Sciaenochromi, but is the most well-known. Other common names it is known by are the Electric Blue and Hap Ahli. They are different from the Mbuna or rock-dwelling cichlids, as they are open water dwellers occurring in areas where the rocks meet the sand. Though not as aggressive or territorial as a Mbuna, the Electric Blue still prefers being around rocky areas where they hide in caves or cracks looking for small fish or some little live foods that they can hunt and eat them.

Aquarium Setup :

    In the aquarium this fish is moderately aggressive and predatory. They are easy to care for as long as its are not overfed. ( Should be fed only 1 – 2 time per day is enough )It also needs the water conditions and tank set up is to its liking. They are readily breed and the fry are easy to raise. The silver colored female may not seem like this is the best fish for a pet. But the brilliant blues of the male more than make up for the lack of color of the females. The females are handsome fish in their own right as well, in fact some females can eventually develop a faded light blue coloring when mature.

   Diet: These fish are omnivorous and can eat many variety of foods including assorted freeze dried foods, beef heart, blood worms, brine shrimp, commercial Cichlid pellets and flakes, daphnia, frozen plankton, glass worms, live fish and tubifex worms , etc.



Tank Size: Their tank size should be about 55g  or Larger  

Tank Region: Mainly bottom dwelling fish. 

Breeding : These fish is a mouth brooder as with most lake Malawi Cichlids. It is generally recommended that the male be placed in a breeding tank with several females A recommended ratio is 3-4 females to one Male. During spawning the Electric Blue may become quite territorial and aggressive the process is very educational and very fun to watch if you can catch them in action. This fish will often breed in caves or hides with the male attracting the ovulating female to his nest whereby ovulation and fertilization of the eggs takes place. The female with then begin to collect the eggs in her mouth where they are held for hatching. This is the reasoning as for the "egg spot" on many Cichlid anal fins, as the female collects the eggs and attempts to grab the egg spot fertilization is assured. After breeding the female keeps the fry in her mouth for three to four weeks The eggs will hatch usually 7 days there after. Fry should be fed brine shrimp initially and may begin feeding on ground commercial foods within a week or so. Stripping the female of the fry may be necessary and can be done safely around ten days after they hatch. This process can be hard on the fish and should only be done by the more experienced fish keeper.

Fish Data : Dog Tooth Cichlid




    Cynotilapia afra, is a freshwater fish of the cichlid family. The genus name roughly translates as dogtooth cichlid which describes the sharp, conical unicuspid teeth unique to this genus within the Lake Malawi flock. The species afra is endemic to Lake Malawi and is found in rocky habitats throughout the lake.
    The afra has an elongate body with vertical blue and black bars. However, there are many different coloration patterns depending on the region the fish is from, for example, the male fish from Kobwe (usually seen spelled either Cobue or Cobwe) is shown in the picture to the right. The population from Jalo Reef show no yellow in the body but have a solid yellow dorsal fin. Other populations have no yellow highlights at all. Males can grow up to 10 cm., females usually somewhat smaller.
    Like most other cichlids from Lake Malawi,afras are mouthbrooders. Males defend territories near caves within the rock piles and feed from algae and micro-fauna on those rocks. Females congregate in mid-water and feed from plankton.Other popular color variations are so named: Chewere, Chinuni, Chitande, Chuanga, Likoma, Lumbila, Lundu, Lupingu, Mbenji, Metangula, Minos Reef, Msobo, Ndumbi, Njambe, Nkhata Bay, and the Nkolongwe


Size: 10cm, sometimes more.

Water chemistry: pH 7.5-8.5; GH 100 – 300ppm; Temperature 23 – 28C.

    These fish is an omnivore , They can accept  frozen or live brine shrimp, high quality flake, pellets, spirulina, and other preparations for omnivore cichlids. It is always better to feed them small amounts several times a day instead of one large feeding. This keeps the water quality higher for a longer period of time. Of course, all fish benefit from added vitamins and supplements to their foods. They will eat to the point of their stomach being distended, so be very careful to not overfeed.
    The Tank size should be about 26 gallons for a pair and more than 60 gallons for a harem. A larger tank will be needed if kept with other compatible Lake Malawi cichlids. They do fine in either freshwater or brackish freshwater but need good water movement along with very strong and efficient filtration. Keeping the ph above neutral is important.

    Rift lake cichlids need hard alkaline water but are not found in brackish waters. Salt is sometimes used as a buffering agent to increase the water's carbonate hardness. This cichlid has some salt tolerance so can be kept in slightly brackish water conditions. However it not suited to a full brackish water tank. It can tolerate a salinity that is about 10% of a normal saltwater tank, a specific gravity of less than 1.0002.

     The streams that flow into Lake Malawi have a high mineral content. This along with evaporation has resulted in alkaline water that is highly mineralized. Lake Malawi is known for its clarity and stability as far as pH and other water chemistries. It is easy to see why it is important to watch tank parameters with all Lake Malawi fish. A higher pH means that ammonia is more lethal, so water changes are a must for these fishes. A very slow acclimation to different pH levels can sometimes be achieved.

     Sand used for saltwater fish or freshwater can be used and if keeping them with a higher ph, the saltwater sand can help keep the ph up. Crushed coral or aragonite sand can also increase the water's carbonate hardness, and tend to dissolves easier than salts. They will enjoy piles of rocks that are stabilized on the bottom glass of the tank, and also robust plants. They will not bother tough plants.

    Malawi Cichlids will deteriorate under poor water conditions. Do water changes of 10% to 20% a week depending on bio load. Malawi bloat is a typical disease especially if over fed.


    ( The teeth of this fish really like Dog Tooth )

Sex Difference :

     Males fish are far more colourful if compare with females

Breeding: 

   These fish are Mouthbrooding egg-layer. They can bred in captivity. The male is ready to breed at 6 to 8 months. The Dogtooth Cichlid females can lay  about 10 - 20 eggs and then immediately take them into their mouths before they are fertilized. The male flares out his anal fin, which has "egg spot patterning" so the female mistakes the eggs spots on the male's anal fin as her own eggs and tries to take them in her mouth as well. In doing so, she then stimulates the male to discharge sperm (milt cloud) and inhales the cloud of "milt" which then fertilize the eggs in her mouth.

   After the time past about 14 - 21 days at about 82° F, the eggs are developed. The released fry can eat finely powdered dry foods andbrine shrimp nauplii. The female will guard her young for a few days, even taking them into her mouth if there is a perceived threat. As long as you have plenty of hiding places, your young will have an easier time surviving until they are too big to eat.
