who is this African fellow?


A rescue fish said to be blue as a juvi with Dark blue/black stripes. He is afraid of nothing! Including me!

No, not really, Yellow labs don't have stripes on their body, and most of the time sport a black stripe on their dorsal fin.



Keynis, females are blue with stripes, while males are yellow with stripes.

Kenyi and yellow labs don't _act_ the same, either. Yellow labs are pretty mild-mannered for mbuna, but kenyi have a reputation as stone cold finrippers. Pretty sure they get bigger than labs, too.
