Scientific Name: Metriaclima estherae
Place of Origin: Lake Malawi
Adult Size: 4 - 5"
Temperament: Aggressive. Especially towards males of the same species.
Description: The name can be deceiving for the Red Zebra. Aquarium kept Red Zebras are yellow whereas they are more red when found in the wild. The zebra stripes also are not easily seen in many specimens. Despite the naming, these Mbunas are lively but with their bright yellow color and their attitude.
Tank Mate Compatibility: Other Mbuna Cichlids and Cuckoo Catfish. Avoid Haplochromis and Peacock Cichlids.
