Sunburst Aulonocara are variable colored cichlids that we recommend for all African cichlid tanks. This beautiful fish goes by different names in the trade: Dragon Blood, and Gold Peacock to name a few. These fish are not natively found in the wild. Sunburst peacock temperaments are similar to other Aulonocara species.
Sunburst peacock cichlids will readily accept most foods presented to them. A good flake food with carotenoids, including beta carotene, will help bring out more of the coloring in them.
Expect a wide color variation from bright reds to orange and light pink. Most will also have a small amount of light blue on the fins and the main body.
