• 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.   

Base Price is a 2,5" male. 

Available through my special order lists, mostly in six-packs. 

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.  It is hard to beat the color of an all-male African Cichlid Tank.

The 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

Recommended Foods: Xtreme Cichlid PeeWee Cobalt Blue (Cobalt Aquatics) Cichlid Flakes or Spirulina Pellets or Flakes. Foods containing Spirulina helps this fish to show their best color.
