Cyrtocara moorii is a cichlid from Lake Malawi in eastern Africa. It is also known by the following names: Haplochromis moorii and Blue Dolphin. Our strain is from a commercial source. We acquired the strain in 2003. Males often reach 25cm (10 in.). Females are considerably smaller. Males are a pleasing sky blue over the body and fins. Mature males sport a large forehead reminiscent of the marine food fish, the dolphin fish. Females are also sky blue, but have a much reduced forehead. This fish hails Lake Malawi in eastern Africa.
