In trade Aulonocara jacobfreibergi is offered in different color variants. Young fish of this species all look the same, they all have the same brown stripe pattern like females. However when they grow older and the males start coloring itīs easy to detect the males because of the color and larger fins.

Nowadays (in the middle of 2017) I have a group of Aulonocara jacobfreibergi "Otter Point" in my aquarium. These fish love to stay between the rocks but mainly they stay at the edge of rocky areas. It is an Aulonocara type which is rather be able against the territorial behaviour of the "mbuna" than other Aulonocara types.

About two years ago, I placed 5 young fish in this aquarium. It appeared to be 2 males and 3 females. One male died when he was about 7 cm so now ihave 1 male with 3 females and that goes very well. The male in this aquarium is about 12 cm. They behave peaceful against other inhabitants except in mating-season, then the male chases any fish away that comes too close to his territory, a cave under the stones on the right side of the tank. I also have found some young ones of this species between the rocks.
