The Malawi Hawk (Aristochromis christyi) is built for speed and agility so it can catch and prey upon smaller fish. They have a sloping snout that easily distinguishes them from other cichlids. Large males are blue green in color with orange in the tails and fins. Females and juveniles are sleek and silver with a dark line that runs from the front of the dorsal to the base of the tail.

These large cichlids are predators and should not be housed with other fish small enough to stalk and consume. If the tank is large enough, they can be housed with other cichlids of similar size and temperament. They will need a meaty diet that can consist of large pellets and frozen or freeze-dried treats as well as plenty of room to accommodate their large mature size.
