Help Identify. Can't find in profiles

Postby Merc Dr. » Sun Jul 18, 2021 6:13 pm

I think these are Placidochromis Haps, but can't find in the profiles page. I'm trying to sell them as a mating pair, but want to provide the correct info.

Mated pair? Those Mbuna are not even the same genus. :(

Yeah...so...they're not haps, they're mbuna. They're not a mated pair, they're both males. And they shouldn't BE a mated pair even if they were male/female, because they're totally different species. Top one with the red fins is a Labeotropheus trewavasae, and the bottom with the yellow dorsal is a Metriaclima greshakei (pure or not is arguable).

So why do you assume they have mated? Just because they look superficially similar?

The top is a trewavasae as said. The bottom is a zebra cichlid. They are both mbuna. Gorgeous fish.
