I wanna buy some fish from this tank, don't want any hybrid though.

Can you please identify them and check if they're pure bred? Thanks a lot in advance.

I can find intermedius, ventustus, red empress(?), lelupi and ?????

Here are the links:

Those are some big fish in a little tank... Is this a LFS?

You are right, I hope it is at least a 65g or bigger, didn't ask though. Fortunately those fishes are not gonna stay there for long, as they are up for sale.

Actually I was looking for some fish (for my 180g), replied to an ad in CL, asked for some pix. So it is from him, not LFS.

Also, can you guys/gals kindly identify some more fish please (numbered ones)/ do they look pure? The guy couldn't tell me any info.


The place is lil far from mine, so I'd like to have expert-comments before driving that far. I know the pic quality is not good enough, but that's all what I've got.

1 and 2 just look like subdominant Protomelas taeniolatus "Red Empress".
3 looks like a Dragonblood peacock - I would say an albino hap of some sort (like Protomelas steveni), but it has the dark eyes.
4 and 5 look like large German Red or Rubescens peacocks (Aulonocara).
6 is too hard to tell from that photo.

These are guesses, but I hope they help point you in the right direction.
