Melanochromis cyaneorhabdos ‘Electric Blue Johanni’ is a mbuna cichlid from Lake Malawi in eastern Africa.The males of this fish are easily confused with male Melanochromis johannii and we don’t recommend keeping them together. The confusion is enhanced by its common name. Our strain is from a commercial source. We acquired the strain in 2004. Males often reach 12.5cm (6 in.). Females are somewhat smaller. Males are electric blue with black stripes and have black fins with light blue margins. Females are also blue and black but the colors are subdued compared to the males. This fish hails from Lake Malawi in eastern Africa.
