Help me name that Fish

Postby hackett896 » Mon Jun 11, 2012 1:00 pm

I just bought a 75 gallon tank that was already established with what I believe are Lake Malawi Cichlids. I am going to put some pictures up, if you guys could, please help me identify my fish.

1. Looks like A young nimbochromis venustus

2. Some type of tetra (non Malawi)

4. Some type of hybrid OB Mbuna

6. A barb of some sort. Maybe a Rosy Barb. (non Malawi)

8. Again maybe another tetra

The rest I'm not sure.

Thanks to all for the help. I knew a couple of them were not cichlids, but which ones, I was not sure of. Thanks again!

Just out of pure curiosity how long have those fish been together in the same tank?

I just bought the tank and everything with it from another guy here in Minot ND. I am just going from what he told me, but he said they have been together for a couple months. I am planning on getting another tank here shortly, and separating the fish. But right now there are no problems. RIght now the Kenyi is semi-aggressive, but not to the point where he is singling out one fish. If it gets too bad I will rearrange the tank, and add more hiding places for the smaller ones.

I used to have a 55 gallon with S American cichlids about 6 years ago (had it for 5 years or so), and really wanted to get back into the hobby, so my wife let me get the setup I have now. I really enjoy having fish, and my two year old son is really happy with the tank, so I guess that is all that matters.
