My daktari has a dark blue color body color with vertical stripes. The coloration is similar to a demasoni but the stripes aren't as wide. Mine changes color and gets very dark especially when I feed him. He's a very pretty fish and has great temperament. He eats just about any type of live or flake food I give him. He's in a 75 gallon community African tank and has no issues with any of my other African cichlids. If you can find one of the blue ones it's an excellent addition to a tank!
