Scientific name: Aulonocara stuartgranti "Cobue"
Trade name: Aulonocara Cobue
Natural habitat: Sand environments near rocks
Food in the lake: Crustaceans and invertebrates that are localized in the sand with their special senses.
Food in the aquarium: I prefer to give my cichlids high quality dry food like pellets, flakes and granules sparingly. No mammal meat!
Behaviour in my aquarium: I have 5 wild Aulonocara Cobue in my 1500L tank. Despite the size of the tank they still want to impress each other. The dominant male chases the other 2 males around the tank, what usually ends with them get driven into a corner. They live together with 10 wild Lethrinops and 5 F1 Copadichromis jacksoni and this group is definitely the most peaceful bunch of Malawi cichlids that I ever had though! The Aulonocara Cobue swim around and "listen" to the bottom for food.
Tankmates: Every "peaceful" Malawi cichlid under a certain size (roughly 18 - 20cm) except Mbuna.
Maximal size: Can vary quite a bit depending on water quality and food amount. Grows to about 12 cm in captivity.
