    Males have a lot of color, females are silver mostly. They show their best color in pH's around 8 but unless you buy wild fish they will do well and show good color in tap water. I used aragonite substrate which naturally raises and buffers the pH to around 7.8-8, no other additives necessary. They do well in large groups to disperse aggression. There is a ton a super colorful haplochromis species that mix well with the peacock (aulonocara) family. Vibrant active and colorful displays are easy to establish and maintain. Bless
