Scientific Name: Melanochromis auratus (albino) is the albino form of the common auratus.
This fish is much less aggressive than its non albino counter part. It is often seen in the Standard and Prestige mixes featured on the specials section of this web site. This omnivore does well with the Bluegrass Aquatics All Purpose Fish Food Formula to provide the spriulina and plant material so vital for mbuna health. They also appreciate the addition of a quality aquarium or Cichlid Salt at the rate of 1 teaspoon per gallon of water.
This fish is often included in the prestige mix. It is important to include spirulina ( Hippocampus Green) in this sensitive herbivores diet.
