The Copadichromis azureus or Azureus Cichlid is a stunning looking Haplochromis from Lake Malawi, which is native to the waters around Mbenji Island, Nkhomo Reef, Chimwalani Reef, and Maleri Islands. Males of this species develop a dark blue color which covers their face, body and most of their fins. They also feature a very light yellow to white stripe which runs along the top of their dorsal fin. The dark metallic blue color makes them a truly stunning fish and one of my favorite Haps. Males can get to be about 7″ in length and females will grow to about 5″.
