More Cichlid ID challenges. Please help
Can anyone ID the bottom two fishes. Their shape is similar to the Krobia South American cichlid, but not sure. Does anyone have more detail?
Don't quote me,but top photo looks very much like yellow labidochromis. Bottom two look very much like some rainbow cichlids I once kept but I am not certain.

i'll agree with 1077 that the bottom two do look like rainbow cichlids-herotilopia multispinosa

I searched more pics and have to agree that they are rainbow cichlids. Thanks. I bought them without knowing what they were due to the fact that the LFS asked R10 (South Africa) for both, which is less than 2 dollars for both. Actually I bought over 40 cichlids from the same LFS, ranging from big to small for R10 ($1.70) a fish on condition I took them all. Ive had them for 8 months now and started ID them. Thansk for the help so far.

Yes it does, mine is however a more dull yellowish colour. If you compare it against the yellow labidochromis in the photo you can see the dull yellow Im referring to.

No, not Salvini. Salvini have two blotchy dark lines running from the eye to the tail and approx. 4 horizontal lines across the forehead. I'm thinking they look more like the Rainbow cichlid.

I think they resemble Jaguar chichlids, possibly a tad Green terrorish..... The Green Terrors are Grand....I must say.
