Protomelas sp. Spilonotus Tanzania Blue Gold goes by a number of different names in the industry. Males are blue with a yellow/orange area on the lower rear portion of their body and lower fins. This area starts out yellow and turns gold with age. This results in the confusion of different names for the same fish. Females are silver with a black vertical line dividing the body in half. Some males can take up to 4" to show full. color. My strain of this fish tends to color up earlier than some other strains.
