Can someone identify this fish?
i have posted some pictures of a fish i got as an "ob peacock" but i don't think that's what it is & i have no clue of its sex. its is the happiest fish with no aggression at all.

can someone please identify my fish?

i have been researching for 4 weeks and still cant even find a picture of this fish. its all so weird!

thank you soooo much!

Mine looks a lot like that, mine's a red zebra OB

this isn't mine just a google image search of a red zebra OB I found. That being said, yours seems to have a pointier face so I'm not sure.

he is about 3 inches. the guy at the pet store says he is a bumblebee peacock. i guess its a cross bread of bumblebee & ob peacock. i have no clue. i have been researching this fish for weeks and still no luck. its almost as if its a new bread. well who knows. he is a really good fish. does not bite or fish. just swims around with out a care in the world and loves to eat. this fish does well with my 13 other ob peacocks and my 5 blue rams. non aggression community. i never see any fighting :)

im not so sure he is a red zebra or badis. but good call on trying. this is a tough cookie to crack! LOL the paters on the red zebra look a lot like the ob peacock but the color is way off. is the red zebra aggressive?

Red zebra are considered moderate aggressive as far as mbunas go. Looks to be an OB peacock to me. They can come in an array of colors.
