Labidochromis caeruleus "yellow" (Yellow Labidochromis, Yellow Lab)

Labidochromis caeruleus occurs in two forms, a blue-white morph that is more common in the wild and a bright yellow morph that is relatively scarce in the wild. The yellow morph is the more popular in the hobby. It is canary yellow in colour with a white-edged black dorsal fin. The blue-white morph is silvery blue most of the time developing its full powder blue colouration with a white-edged black dorsal fin when mature and in breeding condition. Dominant males tend to be the most brightly coloured fish in the group but otherwise the two sexes are similar.


Fish information (behaviour and breeding):

Moderately aggressive this is a good community fish for the mbuna tank where other species of similar size are being kept. Wild fish live among rocks and plants feeding on benthic invertebrates, particularly crustaceans and small snails. In aquaria they accept most prepared and frozen foods.

Easily bred, this fish is a maternal mouthbrooder that should be bred in a similar way to other mbuna. Because sexing this species is tricky, they are best kept as a group and allowed to pair off naturally.
