Marliers Julie (Julidochromis Marlieri)

The Marliers Julie (Julidochromis Marlieri) is a slender, torpedo shaped cichlid

The Marliers Julie can be identified by the checkered type body pattern made by three or more horizontal rows of white spots, and the beautiful blue highlights which outline the entire body around the fins of the fish. The color patterns of this species vary and depend on where in Lake Tanganyika the specimen was collected.

Several slightly different color pattern varieties of Marliers Julie exist and all are extremely attractive.
