Need ID plz

Postby sus » Sun Jun 10, 2012 9:49 am

Following 5 fishes need ID please :-? . Many many thanks in advance. :fish:

Fish 1:
Is he a Lemon Jake or Benga?
Image
The right one is supposed to be a Lemon Jake. This one (Left) has a different shade of yellow on him (less orangish) as seen in this pic. If it helps!
Image

Fish 2:
Is he a Protomelas Spilonotus?
Image
Image

Fish 3:
Is he a pure Blue Gold (Aulonocara korneliae)?
Image

Fish4:
Can he be a Swallowtail or German Red not yet fully colored?
Image

Fish 5:
Is this a MALE Star Sapphire? Or female :( ? Anal fin is pointed but weird shaped, have never seen that shape before. He/she is always moving, can't get a good pic. I'll try to get a movie.
Already ~3", no speckles yet on the body, found 1 on anal fin though, if it counts.

pics are rather small...

1. could be a Lemon Jake. Not a Benga.

2. not sure. is he supposed to be a Spilonatus?

3. yes, could be, don't see many. Usually lighter than the other Stuartgranti types, and more open water swimming. Not sure why they are not more common except that their color does not get as deep as others. Light shiny blue and active.

4. not a Swallowtail Jake at all. Could be one of the "red" peacocks that look kinda hybridish. Nice loach thou.

5. your guess is as good as anybody elses

Thank you so much noki. :thumb: Sorry for pic size, wanted to keep the sizes small so that they can be uploaded easily.

I can't remember exactly, but fish 2 was sold as spilonatus or, marginatus or ovatus. That's why guessing. Here you guys/gals are so expert, could it be something else? :-?

About fish 5, do you have any idea how long will it take to confirm if it's a male? :x
