Since all Labidochromis interbreed regardless of color, it is thought that the more vivid coloration of the aquarium Yellow Lab may be the result of selective in-breeding. The juvenile and adult coloration is an intense yellow body color with blue/black edging to their dorsal and anal fins. There are no noticeable differences between the sexes, except that the male might have more intense color in the fins. The Yellow Lab is one of the few African Cichlids that will tolerate multiple broods of children in the same aquarium, and as such, can be a candidate for a "single species" tank. In the wild, the Yellow Lab will eat just about anything, and in the home aquarium will especially enjoy small snails and other vegetable based prepared foods.
