Electric Blue Peacock Cichlid
Electric Blue Peacock Cichlid, Sciaenochromis fryeri, Pet Kingdom. A really cool African cichlid from Pet Kingdom. The African cichlids come largely from Lake Malawi and Lake Tanganyika and are some of the most brightly colored cichlids in the world (and unfortunately largely pretty aggressive).
Some Lake Tanganyika facts from our friends at Wikipedia: Lake Tanganyika is the second or third largest freshwater lake in the world by volume, and the second deepest, after Lake Baikal in Siberia, being divided between Burundi, Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Tanzania and Zambia.
