HELP ID BABIES???

Postby kizad5317 » Mon Jul 23, 2012 11:50 pm

I am not sure if you can really id them at such a young age ( 2 months) but i figured if anyone could it would be the experts on here. I believe they are from lake malawi but i got the babies from a community tank so no help there.

Those are still very young to make any positive ID, but if I were to take a guess it would be Sceianochromis fryeri. Most very young haps and peacocks look too similar to tell apart until they start to develop some of their characteristic markings.

Scieanochromis fryeri, or hybrids of is as good a guess as possible for now. Why not post pictures of the parents?

Send them to get a DNA test on the Maury Povich Show. That way you can find out who the baby daddy is.
