Lfs where I bought them said they're Benji. Went in today to rehome 2 Silver Dollars and a nice clown Loach and asked while we were chatting.

Did they say Mbenji?
If so, that is a location, not a species name.

Or they may have said baenschi. But it's definitely not Aulonocara baenschi.

Don't think they are jacobfreibergi, they don't have that tail pattern.


See what you mean from the tail Pete, I was looking at the rear of the dorsal (not thinking a pure Jacobfriebergi on second glance but a possibility)

Added 4 blue Dolphin juve's to the mix. The guy with the Saulosi hasn't replied to my latest emails. :(

Dolphins are lovely - one of my fav's - but did they tell you they can also reach 10"+ ?? You may find a bigger tank will be in order eventually !
