The scientific name "labeo" means thick lips, and tropheus means, obviously, trophy, and this cichlid family does have big trophy lips. labeotropheus are mouth brooders, which is always an interesting dynamic in the fish tank. The blue fuelleborni cichild features a primary blue body with some marmalade mottling.
