I have 3 different species of cyps here. 1 is definitely Jumbo Kekese. I also have Utinta, and then another, which is a bit of a mystery species. I am guessing Blacktail, from Kekese, as I am assuming they came in at the same time, but were mislabelled.
Anyone have any photos of each of these species? I wil post photos later tonight of what I have
And when you post the picks of your cyps, don't label them as to what you think you are. Let the rest of the readers try to riddle it out on their own, I think you'll get more benefit out of it this way. After some input you'll be able to make the executive decision as to what you think they really are.
The first 4 look to be Utinta, the 5th is from the same tank? The bottom 2 look to be Kekese and the 6th looks like your Kekese "Jumbo". But its difficult to tell from these pictures, they probably look clearer to you in person. Anyone else want to chance a guess? It won't be helpful if I'm the only one with the guts to be wrong!
I think I have it nailed down. The mistake I made was mixing up some of the non jumbo fish when I moved (accidental). I have found that the kekese non jumbo become barred when they are breeding, and have a darker tail section. The Utinta seem to have "clear" or even toned tails.
Funny that the utinta males wouldn't breed with the odd kekese female.
Thanks for the help. I have a whole lot of the "black tail" kekese non jumbos, so I am selling the breeding group of utinta.
