Glossary of Terms

Sex Uncertain: This fish is too small or not showing enough signs of specific sex yet. Many times 2.5" and up Sex Uncertain will turn out to be females.


Female: This fish is large enough to show male like color or markings and has yet to do so - however, a few males can be late bloomers


Part Color Male: This fish has signs of being male, usually slight color, egg spots, or other male like markings. Some fish, especailly haps can be slow to turn full color.


Male: These are full color male fish. Mbuna fish are tough to sex and may occasionally full me.


WILD: This fish is collected from their native body of water and imported for the aquarium trade. I rarely get these type fish; but, sometimes they are available by special order.


F1: This fish is the progeny of two wild cichlids and are one generation removed from the wild


F2: This fish is the progeny of two F1 cichlids and are two generations removed from the wild


Pair/Trio Only: These fish are sized based on the male's size (females may be an inch or more smaller)


There are no guarantees of sex, compatible pair, or compatible trio combinations; all fish sold as male and female are considered 'likely male' and 'likely female' respectively

New to CAS. Males are Light Blue with yellow on the lower chin and lower front of the body. A very rare male may show yellow on the head as well. Yellow also appears on the top of the dorsal fin. This fish appears to be slow to color. May not color before 3.5 inches. See:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X4GazvxLiUI

Last grow out 9/08/2017. Next grow out count due: 9/22/2017. 

Since this fish is slow to color, it will be moved to my special order list only once those in stock are gone.
