The yellow is strongly contrasted with bright blue markings. Females are the typical peacock olive brown. This cichlid is one of several well known varieties from the Stuartgranti family of Peacocks.

Along with its bright coloring and reasonable size it will quickly adapt to the aquarium, thus making it a desirable pet. Provide open space for swimming and a lot of caves in which to hide, sleep, or breed. Water changes that are frequent also help in keeping this cichlid. They will eat a meaty diet and have an almost puppy like excitability when being fed, thus adding to their appeal.
