Lemon Cichlid

Neolamprologus leleupi


These fish are tank raised in the USA. They have gorgeous yellow coloration and a streamlined body. They already start to show coloration as juveniles and won’t get huge (about 4” max). The fish are sold unsexed. If you are looking for a pair; purchasing 3 fish will give you 75% chance of male and female, 4 fish is 87.5%, 5 fish is 93.75%, and 6 fish gives you 96.8% chance. Pictures are not of the exact one you will receive but they are my pictures from my stock.
