Scientific name: Labidochromis caeruleus

Common name: Electric yellows, yellow labs

Region: Lake Malawi

Size: Males up to 5 inches, females up to 4 inches

Electric yellowColor: A striking deep yellow, with black fins and highlights. The males have darker fins, and will tend to have a black strip through the eyes as well. The intensity of the color will vary with quality of breed, as well as maturity. They do not show egg spots, unlike most other mbunas.The black streak along the top of the dorsal fin turns blue on males during breeding.

Water Chemistry: pH: 7.5-8.5,  medium to quite hard

Temperature: 72-83

Aggression: can be somewhat aggressive, especially while breeding. Ironically, they can also be very timid if kept alone, and usually require more bold fish as tankmates to draw them out.

Compatibility: Mbuna Cichlids such as the Auratus, Cobalt Blue, Johanni, Pindani, Red Zebra, Tropheops, and Kenyi. Also synodontis catfish. I almost always keep a few dolphin cichlids in the same tank to draw them out.

Diet: Algae and spirulina flakes are an important staple. They will also eat flake foods, cichlid pellets, freeze-dried bloodworms and small fish. You should be careful with live worms or live brine shrimp, as these can potentially bloat and kill the fish, although the Electric Yellow is less susceptible than other mbunas.

How to breed: Males exhibit more aggressive behavior when ready to breed. You should perform a water change, and rqaise the temperature a couple of degrees. Breed one male with several females.  Electric Yellows are mouth brooders.  The female cares for 10 – 25 eggs in her mouth, and will keep the fry in her mouth for up to 3 weeks.  The female should be isolated after breeding. The fry can be fed brine shrimp, or mashed spirulina powder. You may have to strip the female to prevent her from eating her babies.

General: I absolutely love this fish. They're a pleasure to look at, they have a nice personality, and it always brightens up a tank to have a colony of yellows thriving in it. Also, if you keep them in a fish tank with black aquarium gravel, their colour stands out even more!

what other cichlids can i keep in a 40 gallon tank with hap ahli, breeding trio?

tank mates
Justin (Unregistered) 2007-02-26 18:07:33

As mentioned above, a great fish to keep with the electric yellow is the blue dolphin cichlid. With Hap. ahlis, you can keep a variety of African cichlids, but make sure they're not too much smaller than the haps.

You may want to discuss this in the cichlid forum as well.

What does it mean when thier fins at the bottom turn black?
black fins
justin (Author) 2007-05-07 08:04:43

It means that there's a very good chance they're males, and maturing as well. Is there also a black band through the eye?
Dead Fry
Joff (Unregistered) 2007-07-11 12:52:59

Is it common for female's to kill their fry? I isolated my female a couple of weeks after she was holding. A week later I came home to a tank of dead fry. About 10 of them. They look like they had all been chewed and spat out. Did I do something wrong? Any comments would be appreciated.
dead babies
justin (Author) 2007-07-11 12:57:28

I've never had this happen to me. Perhaps she was frightened - the electric yellows are timid cichlids. Did you have lots of rock cover for her?
Joff (Unregistered) 2007-07-11 13:07:31

Yes. Nice rock cave and other hiding holes. Im thinking that perhaps she didn't have time to settle well into the new tank. Next time I will get her in as soon as she shows. Plus she had become very thin due to not eating, perhaps she got too hungry, but then is usual for them to get thin i guess if they are not feeding the whole time.
kristin (Unregistered) 2007-07-15 22:09:11

i have a electric yellow.. male or female..i don't know. I have it in a 10 gallon tank right now. It is about two inches. I feel like it is bored in there and needs some other fish. I read somewhere that dolphin cichlids are good. is that true??? if so how many? would one be okay??? Or do you think the best would just be to keep the yellow alone??
electric yellows
justin (Author) 2007-07-16 07:43:00

Yes, a dolphin would make a great companion, but I honestly wouldn't put too many in a ten gallon tank!
you need a bigger tank
joanna (Unregistered) 2009-07-14 20:24:16

You should not have any mbuna in a 10 gallon tank. You should have at least a 29 gallon, with only 2 or 3 small mbuna in it. A 10-gallon is way too small for this fish. DO NOT get another fish to put with it! If you want this fish to live a long healthy life you need to either return it to the store or move it to a larger tank. Whoever sold you this setup did not know what they were doing and is endangering this fish's life.
Kas (Unregistered) 2011-07-02 11:00:24

From what i know any African Cichlid needs at least a 30 gallon tank to be content, then you can get one Cichlid per 5 gallons considering most can get up to 5inches. Make sure to have lots of hiding places too. A 10 gallon is way too small. Cichlids are very aggressive and don't get along well with most other fish so if you want more types of fish you will have to do a lot of researching.

Check out this info:

mashed spirulina powder
brian (Unregistered) 2007-07-26 15:45:26

how do i go about making this? i have spirulina powder already, but it disappeared in the tank when i added it. i'm guessing the "mashing" forces it to stay in a sold shape?

thanks in advance
Justin (Unregistered) 2007-07-27 07:05:03

No, I just take some of the powder, mix it with a little water. Then I suck it into a piece of spare aquarium air tubing, insert the hose into the water near the fry, and let it out. They'll quickly find it and gobble it up.

Today my male electric yellow killed ny female i believe because he was ready to mate and she was not. Can anybody tell me if that is normal behaviour
electric yellows
justin (Author) 2007-09-05 07:35:10

unfortunately yes, this happens a lot. The best way to prevent it is to have 3+ females per male.

My female electric yellow lab just had her third brood of fry. She is great we leave her alone for a week or so then move. Her to a breeding net home in the tank. I moved her out tonite and she is unsure. But shehad her babies trying to get back in everytime she tried to eat. So they can grow and she can build up.her thank god for my 150 gallon tank...hope it is big enough …

justin (Author) 2007-09-17 07:19:49

Yes, it could very well be, but it's not easy to say for sure. Wait and see if they breed, that will tell you absolutely
adam (Unregistered) 2007-09-18 13:11:38

when will they breed and how will i know when they have?
justin (Author) 2007-09-18 13:28:22

They will breed when they're mature enough too, and in good physical condition. I don't know how old your fish are, so I can't tell you exactly when that is.

You will notice that the female is not eating, and that her mouth has a bulge at the bottom.

but can they go back together again
justin (Author) 2007-09-26 11:44:33

Sure, but when you do you should add some more females to distribute the energy of the male. Also, re-arrange the tank to un-establish territories

Ryan (Unregistered) 2007-10-15 10:48:08

I swear that I have a male yellow lab that is taking the eggs into his mouth rather than the female taking the eggs into her mouth. He has strong black fins and a strip through the eye. Is that possible for this "male" to be a female in disguise? This has happened for a few months, and no batch of eggs has become fry.

justin (Author) 2007-10-15 10:49:48

yeah, it's possible that it's a strongly colored female

yup, same thing happened to me. hes the biggest lab i have n i thought he was the dominant male, but i can clearly see the eggs in his mouth. black fins n stripe through the eyes...
this happened to me too
mike (Unregistered) 2010-06-01 10:23:30

i had red zebras that did this, first the female took them into her mouth for a day and the next day the male had them for a day and then he spit them out, my only guess was the female knew they werent fertilized properly and let the male give it a try, and it still didnt work, i dont know why, maybe they were hybrids :/

I am going try doing absolutely nothing at all. The tank sat running for 2 weeks before introducing any fish. 3 weeks went by with no casualties. Then they started dying. I'm going to let them do whatever they do and just watch. If anybody has any opinion, please feel free to post daughter said it would make a great Halloween theme tank, everything in it will be dead. Wisdom from the mouth of a babe...haha
Allan (Registered) 2009-02-02 20:29:00

Perhaps you got the fish with an underlying disease to start off with.

Take a sample of your water to where you got your fish from(assuming you got from a local fish shop) and get them to test your water. If all is good with your water then they should replace your fish.
black stripe through eye
xbrittxmeisterx (Registered) 2009-01-07 11:10:30

I have an electric yellow and it has the dark black stripe through the top fin and also the two bottom ones. If it doesnt have a black stripe through the eye is it a female? or male?
Allan (Registered) 2009-02-02 20:25:10

Generally if your Electric Yellow does not have the above charateristics then there could be a good chance that this is a female.

However I have E. Yellows that has really dark pectoral/ventral fins which i thought was male but then started spawning/holding eggs.

Allan (Registered) 2009-02-02 20:19:02

I personally would not keep an Electric yellow by itself. Putting two females in might be better than just a solitary cichlid in a tank.

I have never had an Electric yellow with red stuff on the sides before. But if its starting to swim upside down then there is definitely something wrong. Try goggling "Electric Yellow red stuff/spots" and see if that gives you any useful advise.

Good Luck.

I have an albino peacock who is constantly being chased by my electric yellow. This never used to happen as of late. In fact the electric yellow would not be aggressive at all. Will my peacock die if this continues? he constantly sits in the corner of the tank not wanting to move all day. Any suggestions?
Cichlid Agression
Robert (Unregistered) 2011-08-10 11:53:13

Smith what you could do is to create more hiding spaces where the Albino cichlid could hide. Its common for males to be agressive and chase the smaller cichlids.
It might be that the electric yellow has claimed an area of the tank for his own so it might be territorial.

I got a yellow chichlid from the pet store i told the guy I had a 10 gallon tank and he said it would do fine i had other small fish in the tank and the chichlid mutalated them. It eat the eyes and fins completely off.So i thought it could live with only other chichlids and bought another a blue one. He suffered the same fate.

throwing gravel

I don't whether to think he is the coolist fish ever or be worried. He keeps throwing gravel rocks at the glass. He swims around builds momentum and picks up the gravel with his mouth sliding it allong the glass and flicking it with his head.NB His tank is under renovation so he is in a fish bowl only for today.

Hey there, well I bought my daughter an electric blue ahli male at Petsmart. But it seem as tough they don't carry any females. My little brother said to just get electric yellow female(s). Could I do that, or what should I do?
