Metriaclima Callainos (Cobalt Blue) regular

Tank raised by Florida fish farmer or hobbyist


MALAWI CICHLIDS SOLD ON THIS SITE ARE GENERALLY 1.25 INCHES TO 2.25 INCHES IN LENGTH AND ARE SOLD AS UNSEXED JUVENILES. DIFFERENT SIZES WILL BE DESIGNATED IN THE SIZE CHART BELOW.


Small: 1 inch


Regular: 1.25 -2.25 inches


Medium: 2.5 - 3.5 inches


Large: 4-6 inches


If you are stocking a new tank or a tank with cichlids under 3 inches you will be safe with small , and regular sizes. If you are stocking a tank that has existing cichlids that are over 3 inches you should only choose regular, or medium sizes.


Most cichlids sold in pet stores are 2 -2.5 inches in size. Our fish are sold smaller because of the demand for these fish and because they ship better at smaller sizes. Our customers have accepted this due to the rarity of the fish offered on our website compared to many of the retail stores. These fish grow so fast, the initial size is less relevant to the quality of genetics and rarity of species. Our regular sized fish will measure between the width of a quarter and the width of a $.50 cent piece. The dynamics of the size is manifested when you know that a 2 inch fish will appear to be 3-4 times the mass of a 1.25 inch fish, since it is not just longer but deeper and thicker and the color is often more robust.

Scientific Name: Metriaclima callainos is commonly called Cobalt Blue as with many Metriaclima, is an herbivore and territorial in the aquarium. Callainos is a great fish for a beginner and is found in the Standard mix and Prestige mix featured on the specials section of this web site. This fish gets 5 to 6 inches and males and females are identical except for the lack of egg spots on many of the females. This mbuna does well with the Red Zebra Stampede or Ultracolor Fish Food augmented with Hippocampus Green to provide the spriulina and plant material so vital for mbuna health. They appreciate the addition of a quality aquarium or Cichlid Salt at the rate of 1 teaspoon per gallon of water.
