    She was sold as a yellow lab. She was much more fluorescent when she was small. She was aprox 1" at purchase & 4-4.5" now. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1407031607.674429.jpg

    ImageUploadedByTapatalk1407112661.401772.jpg this is the male (or at least was sold to me as a male yellow lab) he looks more fluorescent yellow than my female, he is much smaller/younger so idk if that's why. What do you think?

    I was looking at pictures on live aquaria & they have a yellow fish called red zebra cichlid (metriaclima estherae) that comes in red, yellow, and blue variations. They have a picture of the yellow one that looks nearly exactly like my so called yellow lab female. I'm wondering what you think?

    Anyone who can help confirm will be appreciated. I'm almost positive Nemo (female sold as yellow lab) is a zebra cichlid.

    Going on my theory that She is in fact a red zebra cichlid, should I increase the number of Red zebra cichlids or let her be a loner & increase the number of electric yellow labs?

    I'm so torn. I really love Nemo (female suspected red zebra cichlid) she has so much personality!! She greets me along with my Female Venustus, and yes they are friends!! I must have the exceptions for these breeds because the only somewhat pushy fish in my tank is the kenyi. Also I think this many caves, driftwood, and plants help too.
