The Electric Yellow Cichlid is a species of cichlid native to the central Western coastal region of Lake Malawi in East Africa. It is also known as lemon yellow lab (Labidochromis). Electric Yellow Cichlids are peaceful compared to most other African cichlids. They are always best kept in aquariums with other Mbunas. Electric Yellow Cichlids are more suited to an African Lake cichlid community consisting of other Malawi species.

The electric yellow cichlid needs both meaty foods and greens such as brine shrimp, bloodworms, and quality flake or pellet food containing vegetable matter.
