The Aristochromis christyi is a cichlid species that is native to Malawi. Also known as the Malawi Hawk cichlid, the Aristochromis christyi can grow as long as 12″. Females do not get as large as males. This cichlid species is sexually dimorphic. Males feature a light blue body with orange or orange-red fins and females remain a dull silver color.

Given their peaceful temperament and slow swimming speed, they prefer to be kept in aquariums that have rocky bottoms. In fact, they will try to hide behind rocks instead of hunt other fish. They are predatory and will try to eat fish that are smaller than them. Some other compatible Haps are Blue Dolphin, Super Red Empress and Venustus.
