• Labidochromis sp. "Mbamba" (Yellow Top Mbamba) (Yellow Fin Mbamba)

Males are blue with darker blue stripes and have a yellow dorsal fin and tail. Females are either dull blue with darker blue stripes with a yellow dorsal fin and tail or maybe browner rather than blue. Males tend to color around 1.5 to 2". Single Males will mix with Peacocks and Haps.   

Last grow out count 01/30/2018. Next grow out count due 2/22/2019. Grow out counts are counts of the fish in stock checking for additional males and increases in size.  This fish is being discontinued from in-house stock. When it is gone, it will only be available through my special order lists, mostly in six packs. 

Base Price is a 2.5" Male 

Peaceful to mildly aggressive mbuna that mixes well with many other African Cichlids

Best kept in mixed-sex groups, single males sometimes may work in single male tanks with milder peacocks and milder Lake Malawi Haplochromines. 

Best mix of sex for breeding is one male with five or six females.

Please note: No sex is guaranteed on sex uncertain fish. Watch for groups with guaranteed males and females for certain sexed fish in a group. Broods are about 50/50.

Never mix two mbuna of a similar color
