• Xystichromis sp. dayglow (Rare)

Xystichromis sp. dayglow males have a silver face, red on the front portion of their body with the rest of the body being yellow-green, a black vertical line dividing the body and black horizontal lines on the body, red tail, black dorsal fin with a red upper edge and black ventral fins. Females are yellow-green to brown. They are a rare fish from Lake Victoria. What makes them unique is that the male can change his color to dark blue on a whim, and why they do this is not known because it is not necessary for breeding. Single Males will mix with Peacocks and haps; but, may or may not hide color at first.  They are a nice milder Lake Victorian Fish.  Near Threatened C.A.R.E.S. Program fish 

Please take note: Once this fish is gone from in-house stock, they will only be available through special orders. Wholesale prices have gone up on Lake Victorians and the price from the wholesaler will be much more.

Base Price is for a 2.5" Male. 

Last Grow Out Count 9/22/2017. Next Grow Out Count due 10/06/2017. Please note if I run out of time in a count, discontinued fish may be skipped to the next count (3 weeks beyond date listed)

Peaceful Victorian that mixes well with Peacocks, smaller peacefull haplochromis, and a few mild mbuna
