Males have a gray body with darker gray-blue stripes. They sport a large yellow-gold blaze on the top of their heads and shoulders. Their lower face is bright blue. Their dorsal fin is yellow near the body, dark blue in the middle, and has a black upper edge. Their tail is blue with a darker blue edge. This is a very attractive and rare fish. 

Price is for a 2.5" Male

Have you tried Smart Start Complete yet? It helps to keep your aquarium water cycle system woking and keep fish healthy. CAS uses it in our tanks. Our 12 oz. bottles take up the same space as one 3.5" or smaller fish in our 12 x 12 x 10 and larger boxes. This means you can ship a bottle with your fish order with no extra shipping charge in most cases. see https://www.cichlidsarespecial.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=343 for more information. 

2" and smaller sizes of this fish are delicate and should be kept with one teaspoon per gallon of plain table salt in their water. 

I have a few still growing out, but none with color. When they are sellable, they will be posted and then these fish will become a special order only fish after the last ones sell.  

Little color males have egg spots on the anal fin only.

1/2 color males have part color plus egg spots on the anal fin. 

Lethrinops work best with milder peacocks and milder haps in single male tanks. See the compatibility chart. 75 gallon or larger tank recommended.  It is hard to beat the color of an all-male African Cichlid Tank.

The best group for breeding this fish is one male with five to six females.
