I dont stray too far from the turtle area, but figured I'd stop in here. I do keep some cichlids. Wondering if anyone has seen hybrids from a Male blue zebra x female auratus before? I ended up keeping a pair, they were sexually dimorphic just like auratus. Wish I took pics of the adults, they actually looked a lot like Melanochromis chipokae. Heres something that confuses me..After my male blue zebra died, the female auratus turned black like a male, and developed egg spots on the anal fin. The female hybrid also did the same after the hybrid male died. I did create one set of F2 hybrids that breed true, looking exactly like the adults. I wish I took more pics, but these are the only hybrid pics I was able to snap.
