Mdoka White Lips (Placidochromis phenochilus)

Out of stock

Remarks: These amazing fish are famous for their large white lips, which are present in mature males. They are not very commonly imported in from Lake Malawi. The ones that we are selling are bred here at Imperial Tropicals. The fish we now breed were originally purchased from a dear friend of ours Ivan Rodriguez.   

Since both the males and females are very blue in color, there will be no guarantee on the sexed males and females. If you choose a male or female option, we will try our best to send you the sex that you requested.
