Red Top (Labeotropheus trewavasae)

Out of stock

Remarks: Labeotropheus are easily distinguished from other mbuna genera by their curved, hanging snout. This special adaptation allows them to graze on rocks on an almost parallel plane, letting them feed on rocks that other fish may not be able to reach. These Red Tops (L. trewavasae) have males that sport bright blue bodies with red dorsal fins, while females are typically orange and OB patterned. Some males may show the OB phenotype as well, however. If you have a preference for sexing, please include it in your order notes.
