With beautiful coloration right from a small size, the Maingano is a 'must have' for cichlid enthusiasts. Both the male and female are colourful and high quality strains will show very little difference between the sexes. Their natural coloring of electric blue horizontal stripes against a dark black to blue body makes these guys a gorgeous fish for any hobbyist.  This particular line comes from a very good strain producing dark colouration throughout the enire body
