Cichlid ID please...

PostAuthor: monisaab » Thu Apr 12, 2012 16:30

My cousin had this fish for about 6 months or so and has given it to me (he has absolutely no idea what it is)... It is around 3.5" in size...

To be honest I am not sure. I have to ask have you qt'd it at all? The red on the underside doesn't look "healthy"

Did it get a bit of a beating before you got it at all?

It came from my cousin's tank and yes I qt'd it for a few days... It was with 4 auratus juveniles plus a kenyi young adult who was the tank boss, so yes it got a bit of beating here and there but nothing serious...

a few additional pics... It is the same fish...

I think that may have some victorian genes. The other bared fish are Hap sp 44 (or equivalent..) from Lake Victoria.

Cracking fish when coloured up. Your unknown may be a female - I am not sure what the female colouration is... so can't be 100% on that.

:blush:
