Pics and questions
We've come across a bunch of cichlids recently, some rescued some bought.
1. Not sure what these blue ones are, the one in the centre is a male we think and it's a femal on the left. Has same colors as male, but darker stripes but doesn't really show with the head on shot.
2. Not sure what this guy is either.
3 and 4. Know it's a jack dempsey but can anyone verify gender?
5. A picture of most of the fish in the tank. Can anyone spot the fish that doesn't really belong lol. You can see the female from 1 towards the bottom right.
The Jack Dempsey is a male. Sorry, I'm not an African person so I'll let someone else identify those.
Oh, and the fish in the last pic that doesn't belong ...looks like there's a kissing gourami in there.
I would actually guess female for the jack due too all the spangling on the gill plate.
The first pic is a pseudotropheus socolofi. The other one could very well be a sub-dominant male and not a female venting is the only way to determine gender 100%.
The second pic looks to be a small red zebra or metriclima estherae.
You have some hard hitters in that tank so I would watch aggression. Also do not sell/give away any fry from this tank for you defiantly have some hybrids in there.
PS:scientific names might be mis-spelled.
which fish are hybrids? we picked up most of these fish from petland listed as bumblebee cichlids and electric yellow cichlids.... the two blue ones came with a tank I bought the previous owner said they have bred before so I'm guesing one male one female :P ..... the only other unknown fish someone previously identified as a Msobo he's the yellow guy turning blue.... the bumble bees are both male .... though I think one of the yellows may be female not sure tho..... if I have hybrids tho I would like to know so I can keep them from breeding more... thanks
