Dogtooth refers, I believe, to a few cyno afra species.

The second I'm gonna guess fryeri, since most bland fish with that shape end up being that.

Hopefully someone with experience in either of these fish can prove me right/wrong.

I think already the first photo is an hybrid.

And in the last photo i see hemichromis lifalili with a fryeri female :-?

it's very difficult to be able to identify the mix of species into an hybrid. Were he (she) comes from? I think, however, there is one specie of cynotilapia. It's a mbuna hybrid.

It's simple: look at his mouth an at the mouth of the real cyno (the male in other photo) and clear the differences :wink:
