A smaller species of peacock generally maxing at 3.5-4" and closely related to the Maylandi Sulfurhead. This species is normally pretty timid, although exceptions do occur, they generally do best in peaceful Peacock tanks without species like dragonblood and OBs. when dominant they are absoltely stunning, with a midnight blue body color reaching almost black at times, bright yellow eggspots, and a beautiful light blue blaze. unlike most naturally occuring Species of Aulonocara, female Kandeense often show eggspots like their male counterparts, which can make sexing somewhat difficult early on. Interestingly females and juveniles are some of the lightest solid silver peacocks, but when males transform that color gets darker and darker
