(Chilotilapia rhoadesii)

Out of stock

Remarks: The Malawi Bream Cichlid, Chilotilapia rhoadesii, is the only member of its genus. These blue fish have round faces designed so that their jaws can crack open small molluscs as a food source. They forage in large groups across muddy substrates in Malawi looking for snails to eat. A bonus to keeping these fish is they are said to eradicate any existing snail infestations you may have!
