This fish is found in Lake Malawi. Metriaclima sp blue or zebra blue. Marmalade cats are rare OB forms that are natural. For sp. blue, the OB form has blue blotches vs black blotches seen in other OB marmalade cats. Trade name is blueberry. When breeding, blue intensifies.

On a side note, a craft beer brewed in Chicago is named "Blueberry Cichlid"
