The Albino Ruby Red Peacock, scientifically known as Aulonocara sp. Maleri, is a tropical fish native to the rocky, sandy shores of Lake Malawi, Africa. Males exhibit vibrant shades ranging from orange to pink set against a white base, while females predominantly display white or peach hues. Despite their albinism, these cichlids are known to develop surprisingly vivid colors. Males are characterized by bright egg spots on their anal fin, and a small percentage of females also possess these egg spots. Their lively behavior, striking colors, unique shapes, size, and intelligence make the Albino Peacock Cichlid a popular choice among aquarium enthusiasts.
