Hi everyone,

I have posted this picture on other forums as well but figured I'd try here as well.
I purchased this fish as Astatotilapia nubila and it's only 1.5" (looks bigger in the picture)

Any ideas?

when i bought mine they were known as Haplochromis Nubilus. various names for one fish as usual, i bet samaki would know for sure.

The fish that we have in the hobby may not be the fish that was originally described as nubila, but for now, it is the name that best fits the fish.

Never mind... I though it was something else for a second....I take back my original post. I would go with Nubila. Your looks a lot darker than mine though.

Beautiful fish. Both posters are even though they don't look the exact same color they're both really pretty. I'm starting to like haps alot lol. Was planning on sticking with mbuna but I'm sneaking some haps in :oops:
