OK brinkles, 2nd time i have to post apic because you haven't or are unwilling. If you want to guess at the very easy ones, but are unwilling to post a pic, guess at this one . It's genus should be more then obvious, though species is a little tough. Time to put up or shut up!

Gee, that one's not that tough. I was waiting to see if someone else was going to guess, but I "guess" not! :lol:

Appears to be Teleocichla cinderella, but I suppose I could be mistaken.

Yes, Teleocichla. :D But no one has guessed the right species, yet!

Teleocichla centrarchus


Checked some more on the internet and i see the exact same picture is listed as T. centrarchus on other sites :lol: So, yes, Steffano, you are correct. Your turn.

I took the picture from a source that has it listed as T. monogramma. Maybe it's mis-labled or there is some confusion or dispute as to which of the 2 species it is. I'm certainly not able to distinguish these species to know either way! :lol:

Haplochromis Redtail Sp.44? AKA hap thickskin
I just bought a pair this weekend, and the colors are intense.

I was going to do a really hard one but changed my mind and went with the most uncommon fish in my tank

Hi lucid_eye,

Without much african cichlid experince; I would guese Neolamprologus leleupi. Although, the mouth does not seem elongated enough.

Thanks,
Matt
