Need Help Identifying These Cichlids
6 Attachment(s)
So I adopted two cichlids today from my local fish store. I think they are Kenyi cichlids but I just want to make sure. Thanks!!1

Oh they are so very pretty!! I'm glad you posted pics... I saw your other thread and was hoping you would post a pic. How did you come to get fish for free/adoption? What else will be in the tank with them? It looks big, how many gallons?

Dont think they are Kenyi, they lack the stripes. My bet would be Melanocrhomis Johanni. Females tend to be yellow.

thank you!!! they were at petco... the owner was moving out of the country and unfortunately could not take his fish with him. There are those two fish as well as a pleco. The tank is a 37 gallon tank and dont kill me because it is "to small" of a tank ;) I will be getting a bigger tank this summer to house them in.

do you know what kind of pleco?

austinspeer810 01-08-2013 03:20 PM

its a regular pleco. Once he is to big for my tank I will put him up for adoption

They arent yellow enough to be Johanni females, they are very much like yellow labs in coloration.

They could actually be young Pseudotropheus socolofi if they are more white colored than yellow.
