I need help identifying my 2 new cichlids

Postby Mamer900 » Thu Nov 19, 2020 2:52 am

I Just bought 2 new Fishes from a local store which does not label their fish. They just label the tanks as (African Cichlids) :o My questions are:

1- Is the first one a Red Empress?
2- I was told the second one is a sulfer head, but i have never seen one with yellow body, so it might be a hybrid. Any thoughts?

Thanks a lot!

The second one is a Taiwan Reef- Protomelas sp. "Steveni Taiwan". The first one looks like a hap/ peacock hybrid of some sort.

1) Might be one of the "Red" peacock varieties - likely a hybrid.
2) Looks like a Protomelas taiwan reef - like fishboy75 said.
