Julidochromis Marlieri Cichlid
The cross hatched pattern of the marlieri cichlid looks more like spots from afar, hence this cichlid is also called the Spotted Juli. AFS receives these fish four times a year from our favorite Tanganyikan cichlid breeder. The Juli marlieri, or maleri cichlid, grows to five inches in the wild, most likely 4 inches in the aquarium. These ornate cichlids live a decade.
