Question At what age kenyi change their colour ?

I just got some kenyi mine are 2 inch long. So at what age they will change colour and I will know which is male and which is female... Can anyone tell me. I am really interested to breed them someday, so I want to be prepared :) and please tell me anything which I should know about these kenyi. Thanks in advanced

1. Most cichlids, including Kenyi, have highly variable patterns. Their colors will change according to their surroundings, mood, age, state of health, and whether or not they are breeding.

2. There are indeed yellow and blue varieties of Kenyi. The blue are more common.

Although there may be variants of kenyi most in the hobby are the same. The yellow and blue are NOT two different species. Males turn yellow when they become sexually mature usually around 2.5-3" for most mbuna IME and females stay the blue coloration.
