Im new to African Cichlids. I went to my local tropical fish supply and purchased what i thought were electric yellow african cichlids. It might sound weird but im telling u that when i bought these two fish they had that distinctive yellow color that your typical electric yellow should be. When i put them into my aquarium, it seemed like over a course of a few days they both started to look orange. The exact same color as a gold fish. When i went back to the store, I checked the aquarium i plucked them from and all the electric yellow's had the typical neon yellow color. Im looking at them right now, and im telling u, they have the same color as a fruit orange. They're doral fin is just like an electric yellow's with the very tip top a little black in color. I dont understand what the deal is? Is it my lighting? I have a 150 gal tank with 4 florescent lights on top. Im so confused? Has this happend to anyone else?
