New Fish

Conor the Pet Shop owner arrived with 2 new lemon yellow fishes. Conor said they are called “Labs” Their correct name is Labidochromis Caeruleus. This is a species of Cichlid endemic to the central western coastal region of Lake Malawi in East Africa. It is also known as Lemon Yellow Lab, the Blue Streak Hap, the Electric Yellow or Yellow Prince, depending on the colour of the Fish.
Electric Yellows inhabit water with a PH between 7.8 and 8.9 and an ideal temperature range of 23–26 °C (73.4–78.8 °F). Large males may reach 15 centimetres (5.9in length.
In two week’s time Conor will introduce two more fishes to the tank. We are eager to see what they might be!

Gary and Dylan must now increase the amount of food they put into the Fish Tank every day to accommodate the two new fishes.
