You have to note almost all male mouthbrooders have egg spots.

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.

I have been pondering something that i noticed this morning and that is i cannot see the egg spots (still not comin to me) that you can see in the picture up top. The big one named Zeus. Those bright yellow dots just arent visable without that photo. Maybe the flash brought it out.[/quote]

Light one looks like a blue lab/electric blue (Sciaenochromis ahli) or a kenyi (Pseudotropheus lombardoi) darker one looks like it could be a blue peacock (Aulonocara nyassae) or a cobalt blue (Pseudotropheus zebra).....

90gal: 2x Tangerine Discus, 2x Clown Pleco, 2x Catfish.
75gal + 10gal sump: 2x Large Goldfish, 1x Common Pleco, 14x Leopard Danios
55gal: 5x Angelfish, 1x Common Pleco, 8x SIlver Tip Tetras, 16x Neon Tetras, 8x Albino Corys

FYI, your tank looks to be too small for these guys. Probably a 55gal+ is needed.

I thought so too so for the time being i moved the pleco and the bala into my 55. I know not enough room. The reason is the little started up again and my silvs and 1 of my tins are not anywhere near full grown. Also the lighter one is extremely agressive and the only one he respects is the darker one and the poor bala looks as if it has feathered fins. I even tried my big pleco he now has the sail and tail to prove some cichlids are mean to other fish.

I think the little one is a Pseudotropheus socolofi

As these pictures are of one and of mine:


The top one is mine the bottom one is a powder blue

Also i think my darker one might be a colbalt blue just not as good looking as most of the pics i saw.[/quote]

Thankyou for all the help that you have given me but i found out that my darker one might be a Pseudotropheus crabro ( the bumblebee mouthbrooder).

Those cichlids can get nasty and may beat up your pictus cats and BGK.
