Neolamprologus leleupi are typically bright yellow, but their color can vary depending on social status and catch location. Their bright colors help them catch a viewer's eye among other Tanganyikan cichlids, which are typically black, gray, and white. They get along well with most similarly sized cichlids, like Julidochromis, Altolamprologus, and other Neolamprologus. Sexing can be difficult, and impossible when young, so groups should be purchased if the intention is to breed them.
