Electric Yellow Cichlid

Also known as Yellow Lab, Yellow Labidochromis, Blue Streak Hap, Yellow Prince, or Utaka (Malawi).

The brilliant yellow color with vivid black striping of the Electric Yellow Cichlid becomes more apparent with age. This species was first identified in 1956, where it was named caeruleus or "blue" in Latin. The blue comes from the dorsal fin changing to this color in breeding males. The dominant male in a tank will have the brightest yellow coloration.

It is also known as a Yellow Lab, due to its coloration and its genus, Labidochromis. The yellow color variation is naturally occuring and comes from Nkhata Bay in Lake Malawi. It is best for this fish to be kept in a tank with several hiding spots consisting of rubble, stones, and rocks forming caves and mounds. Subdued lighting or plenty of places with shade is highly suggested.
