The Blue Moorii Cyrtocara moorii (previously Haplochromis moorii) is an exotic cichlid that comes from Lake Malawi in Africa. It gets to be rather large, reaching almost 10 inches (25.4 cm) in length. Its overall coloring is a beautiful blue with various amounts of black markings depending upon where each individual comes from. The body is compact and elongated with a rather elongated snout, and with age it develops a large bump on its head. The gorgeous color and interesting shape make this a wonderful show specimen for a large cichlid aquarium.

Whether its a male or a female, this cichlid develops a pronounced hump on its head as it matures. Tthis cranial hump is situated at the front of its body and just above and behind its cute pointy snout. These distinctive features make it look much like a dolphin, though much smaller. It has become commonly known as the Blue Dolphin Cichlid, Malawi Blue Dolphin, Hump-head, Blue Lumphead, Hap moorii, and Humphead Mouthbrooder.
