Electric Yellow Cichlid

The Electric Yellow Cichlid is a naturally occuring variant of Labidochromis Caeruleus. This cichlid is the most popular African cichlid among aquarium hobbyists. This fish is also called the Electric Yellow African Cichlid, Yellow Lab Cichlid, and Electric Yellow Lab


The Electric Yellow Cichlid is set apart from other African cichlids by its bright yellow coloration. It injects a splash of bold color to the cichlid aquarium. Mature specimens flaunt contrasting horizontal black stripes and vertical bars to provide additional visual intrest.


Electric Yellow Cichlids are mouthbrooders. The female lays her eggs on the surface of a rock, and then scoops them into her mouth where they brood for 18 days.
