A little while back I bought these tiny baby cichlids for a steal at $10.00 every 3.
So I pick out 2 of which I thought were yellow labs,
These yellow labs thrived and flourished at a small size and caught up to the other bigger Mbuna tank mates fairly quick!!
Now they are fully matured, and I can’t tell if they’re yellow labs anymore.
I remember yellow labs being slightly more timid and peaceful. Also bearing the sharp black colors on their fins.
These yellow labs have absolutely no black on their fins, if anything they have a small blue tint.
The larger of the two is a TANK. I mean absolutely a fierce fish who constantly keeps his own territory and spazzes out when he sees another fish near it. He is currently on the third level of the hierarchy after my male SocolofI and Pulpican. This fish bites me when I clean the tank and its a pain, he is an absolute beast. What is this fish a hybrid? It’s own separate species? An all yellow lab? Why is this fish such a hardo!?!?
