all males of the aulonocara sp. develop stunning color. the ones you listed are the smaller ones. please refer to some standard cichlid sites for sizes (feeling too lazy to check for you ). i don't remember them correctly (around 5" adult size).

the males are compatible in a 55+ tank. but females of these sp. look amazingly similar. so there's a chance of cross-breeding. its not advisable to keep females if keeping them together.

tank decor is extremely simple - sand and rocks.
pisces - be in peace
