Aulonocara jacobfreibergi is one of the largest of the cichlids generically called peacocks. Not large as far as cichlids go, but males can attain a size up to 8 or 9 inches, females somewhat smaller. Not surprisingly, it is also one of the most popular. Originally called Trematocranus jacobfreibergi or the Malawi Butterfly, it was one of the first peacocks brought into this country in the early seventies. There are several populations available today all grouped under the name Aulonocara jacobfreibergi. The most common are the "Otter Point" and the "Lemon Jake". Others include the "Hongi Island" and the "Cape Kaiser". Recently some albino A. jacobfreibergi varieties have surfaced.

蝴蝶类的Aul属鱼只当中的卢旺达孔雀是在1994年在马拉维湖湖新发现的鱼种。本种鱼只随着成长他们的所有的鳍都会拉长,十分美丽。一般来说,Aul属蝴蝶类的鱼只是比较凶猛的,卢旺达孔雀也一样,如果在繁殖期间雌鱼没有发情的话,雄鱼往往会追杀雌鱼。因此在繁殖期间饲养者需要仔细观察雌鱼的性成长状态和抱卵状态。在饲养的时候最好和比它体形还大的大型或者中型鱼只一起混养。最好是不要和其它的蝴蝶类鱼只混养,以免引起激烈的打斗。在原产地,它生活在马拉维湖水位比较深的地方。它们喜欢在洞穴或者比较黑暗地方安静的生活。所以人工饲养的时候应该给他们准备比较黑暗且安静的饲养条件,这也有助于增加身体色彩。
