not sure what i have

Postby growpower » Mon Feb 03, 2014 7:21 pm

I purchased this Victorian but the seller was not sure what it was, as he took several in on trade for other fish he raises.
Could possibly be a flameback or pundamilia nyererei of some type or a hybrid. What do you think?

I'll see if I can get better pictures tonight. Thanks for your help.

I'll let others play "guess that potential Vic hybrid," but that's a fantastic looking Placidochromis sp. "Phenochilus Tanzania" you have there. How old?

Thanks, he is one of my favorites. I think he's coming up on 3 years. Another one that sets the tank off is my albino reg face Mac. I call him sunny side up. They are such a contrast.
