The Sulfur Head Peacock Cichlid is a striking freshwater fish that originates from Lake Malawi in Africa. It is a popular cichlid species among aquarium enthusiasts due to its unique coloration and easy maintenance.


Sulfur Head Peacock Cichlids are relatively easy to care for and require a spacious aquarium with plenty of hiding places, such as rocks, caves, or driftwood. They are omnivores and should be fed a varied diet that includes high-quality pellets or flakes, as well as live or frozen foods such as brine shrimp or bloodworms. It is important to maintain good water quality, and regular water changes should be performed.


The Sulfur Head Peacock Cichlid gets its name from the bright yellow-orange coloration of its head, which contrasts with its blue and black striped body. The males are typically larger and more colorful than females, and they have elongated dorsal fins. They can grow up to 6 inches in length.


Sulfur Head Peacock Cichlids are generally peaceful and can be kept with other African cichlid species of similar size and temperament. However, males can become aggressive towards other males during breeding or territorial disputes, so it is recommended to keep them in a group with several females.
