    That is Neolamprologus brichardi "daffodil"
    A good community type tanganyican, but very aggressive when breeding.

    They are egg layers. Need to be in a species tank to breed successfully. Breed at around 6cm or so

    As pairs develop, you will see others will be chased to other ends of the tank. If no hiding is available they will be killed by the pair.

    Males can develop a very slight bump on the forehead, but even that is not conclusive
