I have a Mdoka White Lips I bought a while back that was sold to me as a male. It has grown to about 5 inches and is a dark blue on its head, but the rest of his body is still light. Can anyone shed some light on this?

Female white lips have the rep of being colorful.

Here is a picture of the fish. I would think it would have been a darker blue all over the body by now if it were a male.

I have raised and bred the white lips a few times. All the ones I have bred and seen have the typical darker blue bodies. Yours seems really light blue. Is he a sub dominant fish in your tank?
