Anomalochromis thomasi is a rarer dwarf cichlid that hails from Africa. While they are often overlooked in stores due to their relative lack of colour, they develop subtle but beautiful colouring including bright reds and blues as they settle in to a home aquarium. These cichlids are also renowned for their hardiness and peaceful attitudes, as well as their ease of breeding. Because of that they are highly recommended as centrepiece fish for smaller communities, for beginners and experts alike.

The specimens we have now appear to be a male/female pair, about 1.5-2" in length. We always do our best to sex fish on request but due to various factors we cannot guarantee the sex of our fish.
