About This Item
I am always alert for items I can convert to travel bugs. This is one of a small series of painted, wooden, generic fish-shaped cutouts to which I have attached a tag. Each TB of the series is named for a freshwater aquarium fish of the same color as the wood fish. An image of a live fish can be seen elsewhere on the TB page.
The Yellow African Cichlid is also known as the Yellow Lab. Considered a newer species and referred to commercially as Labidochromis tanganicae. This fish lives in the waters of Lake Malawi between the islands of Charo and Mbowe. First displayed at Burundi in the early 1980's and exported from there, the Yellow Cichlid was mistakenly believed to come from Lake Tanganyika. Mature specimens flaunt contrasting horizontal black stripes and vertical bars to provide additional visual interest.
