The Daffodil Cichlid Neolamprologus pulcher (previously Lamprologus pulcher) is an ideal cichlid or for any aquarist to keep. It is a hardy African cichlid with an elegant, graceful appearance.

The Daffodil Cichlid is almost identical in appearance to its popular relative the Fairy Cichlid Neolamprologus brichardi. However the Fairy Cichlid has bluish gray fins and can be identified by the black stripe running from the eye to the gill cover and a yellow spot just above it. These markings are absent in the Daffodil Cichlid though it has the two crescent shaped markings behind the eye, and its fins are yellowish.
