Aulonocara hansbaenschi `red shoulder,`
photo from The Cichlid Exchange, used by permission
 

This attractive "peacock" is sometimes sold to aquarists as Aulonocara hansbaenschi "red shoulder." However, I am inclined to agree with Konings (1995: 196) that A. hansbaenschi is simply a synonym of the quite variable A. stuartgranti. The photograph of an aquarium specimen seen here was taken by Mark P. Smith, and is from The Cichlid Exchange in Portland, Oregon; it is used here with the kind permission of both Smith and The Cichlid Exchange.
