Help me identify my new fish please??
I just bought a 90g tank with assorted cichlids from a family that was moving and couldn't take them; I am new to owning these types of fish and don't exactly know what I even have in there. Can you take a look at the pictures help tell me what I have so I can learn more about them??
Thanks!! Attachment 18086
Sorry I posted in the wrong forum, I know these arn't salt water, I clicked the wrong forum when creating this and I don't know how to edit it.....
The 3 large brown ones with the black vertical stripe at the base of their tails are Severum (South American cichlid). Pic #6 is a Jack Dempsey (Central American cichlid, looks like a female), the others look like African cichlids which I'm not good at IDing so maybe someone who keeps Africans will be more help there.
The blue one is a jack dempsey?? Thanks for your help!! At least I know where to start googling
Oh, also in the last pic I see a Jewel cichlid in the background (one of the few Africans I do know).
Is that a goldfish in there? Looks like you have a comet goldfish, which really should not be kept with cichlids. They really need cooler water (68-72 degrees) and can't handle the cichlid's aggression. I would seriously consider rehoming it.

It would be best to, the warm water cichlids need is stressful for goldfish. It was probably a feeder that was too big and escaped being eaten.
It kinda looks like you have an albino zebra, the pinkish looking one, and a couple of red zebras, two of the orange ones. Those would be Mbuna African Cichlids.
The picture under my name is a Red Zebra for reference.
That is definitely a diverse cichlid tank.
