I'm so lost and confused as to what I am can someone help me?

I'm not an Albino Pseudotropheus socolofi


I'm not a Yellow Lab or a White Tail Acei


I'm not a Cobalt Blue Zebra or whatever that other guy is?


So can you guys help me please?

I'm not sure the first fish is even an African. Looks more South American to me, maybe an acara of some sort?

Agree with James for #1. I'd say #2 is Labeotropheus, though. Lip looks overslung and body is too elongated to be a peacock. #1 will get the snot kicked out of it by mbuna, most likely

#1 is definitely something from the true Cichlasoma, which generally are referred to as "Ports". I doubt that it is portalagrense, as that species is less common than several others. It is from South America, and is not a rough enough fish to do well with Mbuna.

#2 is too elongate and too thick to be a Peacock, does appear to have a slight Labeotropheus mouth, but those pictures are so blurry I can't be sure. Certainly some sort of Mbuna.

Yeah, my camera sucks with taking pick of the fish in the tank. #2 I thought it was a Labeotropheus. I guess I'll see if a LFS will tank #1. It's actually been keeping the Mbuna line, but they're still Juvies.

:oops: Yep on second look far more Mbuna than peacock and I would not argue with Labeotropheus though the nose seems a little small but then many TB lines have small noses.

All the best James
