The Albino OB Peacock Cichlid is a hybrid derived from the Aulonocara species, native to Lake Malawi. These cichlids are distinctively white with red eyes. Males are adorned with egg spots on their anal fin. Typically, adult Albino OB Peacock Cichlids measure between 5-6 inches in length. While males can grow up to 6 inches, females usually attain a size of about 4 inches. Due to their hybrid nature, their color patterns might exhibit some variations compared to purebred fish.

Aquarium Size and Conditions:

  • Size: A minimum tank capacity of 50 gallons is recommended. However, larger tanks are preferable to accommodate their territorial behavior and active swimming patterns.
  • Substrate and Decor: A sandy substrate is ideal, complemented by an abundance of rocks to establish territories.
  • Water Parameters:
    • Temperature: A range between 75° and 82°F (24° to 28°C) is optimal.
    • Heaters: Given the potential rough behavior of large African cichlids, it's advisable to use plastic-coated ceramic or stainless steel heaters instead of glass ones.
  • Tankmates: Albino OB Peacock Cichlids are mild to moderately aggressive. They should be housed with other Peacocks and Haps of similar size. It's recommended to avoid keeping them with mbuna cichlids.

Feeding Recommendations:

Albino OB Peacock Cichlids should be provided with SRC Hi-Intensity color food to enhance their color development. This diet promotes vibrant coloration in these cichlids.

Additional Notes:

  • Due to their hybrid nature, the color patterns of Albino OB Peacock Cichlids might not be as consistent as those of purebred fish.
  • Males can be slightly territorial, so providing ample hiding spots in the form of caves is essential.
  • When considering the male to female ratio, it's recommended to have 3 to 4 females for every male to ensure a harmonious tank environment.
