What Cichlid is this?

Postby JBRangers11 » Tue Nov 10, 2020 3:05 pm

Been a while since I've been on here but was hoping someone could help me identify the Fish in this picture with the OB. Looking to restock with a few peacocks and wanted to make sure I knew what I was dealing with.

Thanks!!

+1 for cobalt blue zebra mbuna. Be careful. Mine is a nasty little bugger. Very aggressive but fun and beautiful fish. I noticed you have a peacock and I think I see a Malawi eye biter. Please be VERY CAUTIOUS. Mixing mbuna and these two could be deadly. Peacocks and mbuna don’t play nicely. Haps and mbuna are ok, but compressicus (please pardon spelling) like the eye biter can be a VERY BAD combination with mbuna. Speaking out of prior experience.
75 gallon Mbuna and Victorian tank (also contains cats and venustus)
5 gallon fry tank
165 gallon turtle pond

Just your average fish keeper tryin to avoid turtle disaster.
Ok I’m done now.

Thanks for this information. Its very helpful. That 3rd fish is actually a Giant Danio from a small group I had since my initial setup and cycle about 5 years ago or so.
