2024 May Monthly Color Challenge Block

 In my little place in the world, May and yellow go together so well.

Our challenge this month is inspired by tropical fish. Such beauty lays under the water, it's hard not to be inspired.

This month our color is yellow and we look to the Electric Yellow Lab for our inspiration. Anyone half expect a picture of a yellow dogfish? 😏

From ModestFish Colorful Freshwater FishElectric yellow labs are another popular African Cichlid amongst aquariums for their bold, vibrant yellow bodies with a black stripe along its dorsal fin.
Although peaceful in comparison to some other African Cichlids, electric yellow labs are notorious fin nippers and shouldn’t be kept in a freshwater community tank. This fish should be kept in an African Cichlid community tank with other Malawi species.
You will need a minimum 55 gallon tank with sandy substrate and rockle piles with caves. It’s best to keep one male with several females as males can become aggressive to one another.

Yellow, to me, is such a happy color. I can't look at it without feeling a lift to my spirits.

I'm using Benartex's "Burlap" fabric line. I love the texture of the fabric, sooo much.
