Haplochromis "Xystichromis" sp. "dayglow" males have a powder blue head with the typical black vertical bar running across the eye. This fish also has a characteristic black blotch on the upper part of its gills. Males will fluctuate in their color depending upon their mood, switching between yellow and blue. Its bright red tail contrasts beautifully with the blue to yellow coloration of the males. They typically possess three orange egg spots on their anal fin, which are distinctively outlined in black (one is significantly larger than the other two). Also, only one dominant male will display his color. Any others remain almost colorless and could quite easily be mistaken for females. Males should be kept in ratios of at least 2 females to every male. They are very prolific spawners, and broods consist of 15-30 fry.
