    Here's another gem donated by Jared!

    He/she is a Neolamprologus leleupi "Karilani" as they originate around Karilani island. I have read that there are several Neolamprologus leleupi colour variations ranging from yellow, orange, brown and blue.

    They are sometimes also called "Firecrackers".

    Hey Jared,

    He's a very visible orange in comparison to my other leleupi's. Whereas they're a sunflower yellow, he a very visible and distinct "naartjie" orange. I'm trying to get a pic with him/her next to my other leleupi's.

    Something that is not visible in these pics is his head which is becoming blue - similar to my yellow leleupi's.
