Remarks: The Swedish strain of Labidochromis sp. Hongi have been linebred to produce more intense orange-red coloration in the forehead and dorsal fin, as well as darker blue bands and an almost white body. They are herbivorous mbuna that strongly defend rocky territories (unlike Yellow Labs, another Labidochromis species). Males are a pale blue with dark striping, a bright orange dorsal fin and forehead, and several purple mask lines between the eyes. Females will typically be similar in color, although somewhat muted.
