Mylochromis ericotaenia, is a large, mouthbrooding haplochromine cichlid from Lake Malawi, Africa. This fish was first discovered by Regani in 1922.
Males are dramatic looking fish with a large extended, almost sailfin-like dorsal fin. The males have spectacular coloring that includes a rich electric blue sheen and are typically covered with red dots throughout the flanks and the dorsal. Konings reports that large males may get a nuchal hump. Females and juveniles are attractive with four to eight vertical stripes which may be either partial or extend completely down the flank.
