The Electric Yellow Lab Cichlid, also known as Labidochromis caeruleus, is a popular freshwater fish that is native to Lake Malawi in Africa. It is a relatively peaceful cichlid species that is known for its vibrant yellow coloration and striking appearance.


Electric Yellow Lab Cichlids require a spacious aquarium with plenty of hiding places, such as rocks, caves, or driftwood. They are active swimmers and should be provided with open swimming areas. They are omnivores and should be fed a varied diet that includes high-quality pellets or flakes, as well as live or frozen foods such as brine shrimp or bloodworms.


Electric Yellow Lab Cichlids have a distinctive bright yellow coloration, with the males usually being more vibrant than females. They have a compact, oval-shaped body and a pointed head with a protruding lower jaw. They can grow up to 4 inches in length.


Electric Yellow Lab Cichlids are relatively peaceful and can be kept with other African cichlid species of similar size and temperament. They are active swimmers and enjoy exploring their surroundings. They can become aggressive during breeding or territorial disputes, so it is important to provide ample hiding places.
