Aulonocara stuartgranti, hansbaenschi (Chiloelo) or Red Shoulder Peacock is a popular species of peacock cichlid found among African cichlid hobbyists. This species of Aulonocara is native to the waters of Lake Malawi, in the areas of Chiloelo and Mozambique. Males develop a dark metallic blue color that covers their face and most of their body, including their dorsal fin, anal fin, and tail fin. Behind their gills or in the “shoulder region” they develop a dark red color which extends down to the tips of their pelvic fins. Males will get to be about 6″ in length and females will be a little smaller.
