Species group: Cichlids
Other common names: Labidochromis Electric; Electric Yellow; Lemon Yellow Labidochromis
Scientific name: Labidochromis caeruleus
The Electric Yellow Cichlid is one of the most popular Cichlids because of its bright yellow color. The Electric Yellow Cichlid is a typical mouthbrooder. The Labodochromis Electric is a favorite among Cichlid lovers because of its attractive color and ease of care. They enjoy almost any type of food but prefer live food and algae.
It may appear in many color morphs like the blue-and-white, but the most common is the striking yellow male with dark eyes. When kept in a group, the dominant male will have the brightest glossiest tint with dark and prominently black dorsal fin. Bright yellow, assorted color morphs.
The Lemon Yellows are aggressive, and will do well among similar species that are relatively of the same size.
For a small group of Lemon Yellow Labidochromis, a tank of 30 gallons or bigger is recommended. Their native habitat includes tall plants and rocky substrates. Good filtration and regular water changes help keep ideal water conditions.

Copper works when dosed correctly
Copper sulfate is a heavy metal that when dosed correctly, kills Chilodonella. The idea is to kill the parasite and not harm the fish. Dosing is based on the alkalinity (carbonate hardness) of the water. Copper toxicity increases as carbonates decrease, so a lower dose is required in low-alkalinity water. Charts can be found online. You'll need a copper test kit and alkalinity test kit to dose in the best manner. Otherwise, follow the directions on the treatment label.Avoid chelated or complexed copper medications. They are not effective..
