The Electric Yellow Cichlid is a species of cichlid native to the central Western coastal region of Lake Malawi in East Africa. It is also known as lemon yellow lab (Labidochromis). This naturally occurring yellow-color variant from Lion’s Cove is our most popular cichlid we offer. Electric Yellow Cichlids are peaceful compared to most other African cichlids. They are always best kept in aquariums with other Mbunas. Electric Yellow Cichlids are more suited to an African Lake cichlid community consisting of other Malawi species.
In your aquarium, be sure to offer things that are similar to native natural habitat: rocks, caves, & a sandy substrate is ideal.
