IMO Nkonde yellows have a more plum colored face than linangu. Either way both trophs are gorgeous and one of my favs....

They must be caught close to each other! I have had both nkonde and linangu, and for me the different was the overall "color quality" of group. The nkonde have more yellow, and the linangu are more white-yellow and more settled in their color on the head.. I have to say that i liked the difference in the linangu group.. The nkondes where more alike to each other.

Here are the "best" induviduals of the groups;

Nkonde(Under kz fiji pink and 12.500k t5's)

Linangu (Under ca 7.500k metal halide)

Very nice looking linangus fishboy! They seems to be in exceptional condition

Your linangu's are very nice, I have always admired them. I do love the white they show. Mine do not have any white. The thing I love about these linangu is that the entire colony maintains excellent coloration, not just the dominant fish...

That is not what i could say about my former linangus. They varied a lot The best looking ones where a sight,. but the pale yellow white with almost gray-brown head was not much to jump in the roof for

How large are your linangus?

The smaller ones are 3.75-4" and the largest 2 males are close to 5" i would say. My favorite male, the right side of the tank one, isnt even one of those. He is only 4.5"...

Kristian, your photo of the Linangu is the one that got me started on these guys. I do like the yellow but the fact that it trails off to white is the best part for me. The ones that I have are still small but the heads on them are a deep plum colour already.
