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.

Tanks Philippe.


my Labidochromis is similar to that in the picture but is also similar to the description of the Labidochromis from undu point.

It was bought in Germany by cichlidenstadl with the name of Labidochromis Caeruleus nkali
