Gold Mbamba Bay (Placidochromis sp.)

Remarks: This species of Placidochromis from Mbamba Bay mimics its Jalo Reef cousin with its brilliant blue-green face, but beyond the gill plates, the body becomes golden yellow with faint black stripes appearing, depending on the mood. The dorsal, anal, pelvic, and caudal fins are dark black with light gold trim, much like a Flavescent Peacock.
