This is not the best of combination because the water hyacinth is considered a weed plant in Lake Malawi and the environmental ministry there constantly battle to eradicate this plant from the lake.
This is because it blocks the sunlight and hinders the growth of plankton in the lake which causes problem for the cichlids and other fishes in the lake.
But I thought the color tone matches with beautiful blue hue of the Blue Dolphin Cichlid (aka Cyrtocara Moorii). My son keeps a tank of African Cichlids and the Blue Dolphin cichlids are beautiful.
Just to make my painting a little more interesting, I have decided to include a couple of these cichlids.
