Rusty Cichlid




Iodotropheus sprengerae

These beautiful Mbuna or rock-dwelling cichlids were one of the first species exported from Lake Malawi. The Rusty Cichlid has a rounder head & the basic shape of a Pseudotropheus cichlid. Males usually have intense rust-coloration around their head and violet-blue on the flanks. Malawian & Victorian cichlids are similar in care and temperament, leading to fish from these two lakes being grouped together in the hobby.
