View Full Version : I need an African ID

07-20-2009, 03:42 PM
I got these three at a pet shop where they just mixed all types of Africans in a big tank, so I have no idea what they are :[ And the one that almost looks redish is actually a light golden color, for some reason every picture I look made it look red. I'd really appreciate the help, thanks.


Opps I just realized this is the completely wrong forum, my bad :]

LOL, I saw that. I was like there africans in the discus forum haa.
I think the first one is a rusty cichlid. Not sure about the other two, and nice fish.

The pic on the right looks like this.

The fish in the second photo appears to be some sort of tropheops. In that regard the fish in the first pic bears great semblence, particularly in the shape of the head and mouth (there are many varieties and color morphs of tropheops, though it typically isn't a common fish to find). The fish in the 3rd pic is some sort of labeotropheus.
