What species are they? I was thinking they could be cichlids.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Off it goes to the Cichlids section then. I'm not sure if these are mouthbrooders as I do not have much knowledge with Lake Malawian cichlids however one thing I can tell you is that males are generally bigger and have egg spots on their anal fins.:)

I dont think that is a very accurate way of sexing them as i have had many of them as young and this is how i sex them.

Young male:Seems to have a blue sheen to him.
Young female:doesnt have blue sheen
Adult male:Bright blue colouring with red fins and a strip of white on the top fin.
Adult female:NO colouring just a plain brown.

HTH

Jamie :D

Depends entirely upon exactly which species we're talking about. I can think of at least 5 or 6 Lake Malawi cichlid species that commonly go by "electric blue".
