yellow afra/ afra cobue

Recommended Posts

Have seen various 'Afra' varieties incorrectly sold under the name Cobue - have been caught out many times. Have also seen three lots of "Yellow Afra" two of which looked nothing like an 'Afra' - the third of which were an Afra but too small to tell what type. Short answer - view the parents - only way to know what you are getting.

Thanks for your help none, the reason i asked is i got 4 fish as cyno cobue but they have no yellow on them at all , at 60mm i expected to see some yellow. i read on the internet that cobues are sometimes called yellow afra, i have only had these fish for a few days, they are very skittish maybe they need to settle in,

The Yellow around the head is the last part to colour up on the true strain of Cobwe I have. As juveniles they have no bars. On mine at around 5.5cm the bars developed. At around 6.5cm the Yellow just starts to become visable. That's just one strain I have - others may colour earlier or later.
