• Lethrinops sp. Mbasi Creek (New)

Males are very colorful. They have a mostly blue/green body with red on the shoulder, and on the anal fin. The anal fin also contains multiple white egg spots. Their dorsal fin is blue and red with a light blue upper edge. See http://www.cichlid-forum.com/profiles/species.php?id=2312 

Base price is a 2.5" male.  Last, grow out count 04/19/2019. Next, grow out count due 05/10/2019.

Lethrinops work best with milder peacocks and milder haps. See compatibility chart. 

These fish are being grown out from smaller sizes obtained from my wholesaler. Occasionally I am able to get some 3" or larger males from the wholesaler as well.
