I've been told this is a textilus, but I know nothing other than that. Can anybody confirm what species this is?

Labidochromis textilis :-)

CORRECTION IT IS NOT a Textilis.

It is a Labidochromis joanjohnsonae female!

They look similar but are two separate species.

It's only about an inch long, how can one tell what sex it is?

Tazman 05-07-2012 09:47 PM

Males are Blue from birth and only the females are gold/orange like that.

Ah, ok thanks
