1. a mature male "Elongatus Chailosi"? Seems too dark for a Metriaclima sp. 'mbweca'. I think a Metriaclima species, not a Cynotilapia. Nice male, probably not a hybrid.

2. seems like a low quality M. greshakei. Some many of those sold may be hybrids or poorly bred. Probably a hybrid, commonly sold fish but few seem like a Greshakei should be.
