The Yellow Blaze Zimbawe Rock is a beautifully colored fish and originates from Lake Malawi in Africa, where they inhabit caves. The most noticeable aspect of the male cichlid is the bright yellow blaze that runs over the head all the way down to the tail. The body has a blue tinted color, which creates a very nice contrast and stunning look. Females however are smaller and remain gray or dull, without the brilliant colors shown by males.
