This fish is also known as the Malawi Gar.
A very rare and extremely hard to find fish in the hobby.
General – This fish has a narrow head and pointy snout, it is also the only species in its genus. Males will get a vibrant blue and yellow coloration with a little red in the mix. One look at them and you can tell right away that it is a Malawi Gar due to their long snout and unique head and body shape.
Tank Requirement – 65G or larger is recommended, anything below this is too small. They prefer open water with minimal decoration.
Compatibility – The Malawi Gar is compatible with all other peacocks and haps. I have no experience with Mbunas and South American cichlids.
Aggression – They are not very aggressive.
Size – They can reach up to 10-12″ inches in the aquarium.
Male vs Female – Male of this kind will be more colorful than the female. Females will stay silver like many other peacocks and haps.
Breeding – Similar to all other peacocks and haps.
Diet – They prefer a high protein content food. Feed them high quality pellets.
Characteristics – They use their long snout to get food from hard to reach areas such as cracks between rocks and etc. I also see them siphon sands to find food pretty often.
