The Neo. Leleupi is one of, it not the only all yellow cichlid we find in Lake Tanganyika. Lake Tanganyika has a lot of interesting fish, but there color is subtle a lot of times. The colors are there with the right lighting, but the striking notion is usually due to black and white patterns rather than blistering color.
Not so with this little bombshell. The N. Leleupi will only reach a size of roughly 4 inches for an adult male. They are a torpedo shaped fish like Marlieri or Cylindricus. The difference is that they are a tropical Florida yellow or orange, the entire length of their body and even including the fins.
