ok this picture is supposed to be yellow labs and cynotilapia sp hara. but the one hara has never looked right and this is really the first pic to show the differance.
so is it by chance a mystery fish or could it just be a hara without color?lol

The fin color definately looks more greshakei than hara but I'd say it's definately a cross between a greshakei and something else to get that body color with that fin color...

the body is more of a light blue but the tail looks very close to what the pic shows. and ty very much. i looked up greshakei and some of the pics i see could be the little guy.

I finally spoke with the breeder that i bought the fish from and was told that it was a mistake on the breeders end and i was the proud owner of a cobalt blue zebra.(Metriaclima callainos). i set up a 29 gallon tank and removed the blue and wow. my dom male cyno hara colored up and has stayed that way. woot!

Sorry but the breeder is wrong =P It's a red top and i'd put it at 99% sure of being Greshakei specifically. Cobalt blue would not have the orange tipped dorsal fin and tail.
