YUNUS (CYRTOCARA MOORII) Ekleyen : Selçuk Çobanoğlu

Cyrtocara Moorıı Also Called The Blue Dolphin Of Lake Malawi. A Very Beautiful Fish With An Excellent Coloration With All Grades Of Blue. "very Peaceful For An African, İt Will Only Chase Other Fish İf Provoked Or When Spawning". At Least This İs What Should Happen. However, My Male C. Moorii Hasn T Read Any Books So İt Doesn T Behave Like That. Very Peaceful With Most Species İt Fights Ferociously With The Strongest Fish İn My Tank, The Nimbochromis Venustus. Very Often You Can See Both Of Them With Scars And Missing Scales. Once These Fights Begin All Other Fish Stay At The Tank Corners Leaving The Center To The Two Gladiators, Who May Spend An Hour Chasing Each Other. Strange As İt May Sound The Moorii İs The Hyperdominant Fish İn My Tank (something That Will Presumable Change When My Buccochromis Nototaenia Male Reaches Adulthood, Now A 21 Cm "baby"). The Moorii Will Eat Any Cichlid Food Offered İn Big Quantities. Provided With Lots Of Space They Will Spend Most Of Their Time Swimming Around (you Must Provide Them With Swimming Space). Grows Fairly Large And Should Be Kept İn Large Tanks Only (>500 Lt). Males May Exceed 20 Cm İn Length (mine İs Already About That Size) And Their Body Shape Calls For Too Much Space. It Takes A Very Long Time For This Fish To Start Spawning (almost Two Years), But When They Do They Are Like A Clock ! My Pair Spawns Every 45 Days. When Trying To Remove The Carrying Female To Her One Tank You Should Be Very Patient And Avoid Any Moves That May Frighten The Fish
