From Sam Bornstein's site:
White with blue fins- This fish is from Nkhata bay, and is becoming very popular now.
White- From Lundu Island
Yellow with a blue dorsal- From Kakusa
Lion's Cove- Pictured above. This is the most popular in the hobby.
White with dark blue bar- This fish comes from Undu Point.
