ok...im new to this ..i was given a bunch of fish from a school fete and one of them seem to be a baby malawi which went on to kill all the other fish one by one.... and now he is getting bigger and bigger...and outgrowing the small tank.

thing is i cant bring myself to flush him and have got quite attached to the little fella....

so i was going to get a much bigger tank such as a 4ft by1ft by 1ft tank that would be able to give him some room to live...

also i would like to give him some friends...ie same species

but before i can go into all of that i need to identify what kind of malawi he is and wether he is indeed a male even ??

any help would be great ...thanks.

see attached photo

thanks for the tip.. i looked up that type and found a photo of a young Buttikoferis which seems to match mine quite well.

also this explains the aggresion.....and now i know this one will just grow to be massive....deffinitely time for a new tank.

oooooh....i love the suspense.....whatever he is he is going to get first class tlc.....thinking how he survived the school fete "grab a fish " fiasco ...and then the whole platic pool was tipped onto the grass for the fish to die...so i just went up and tried to save a few....i think i am a passive buhddist ......and he got saved......HBO could make this into a mini series. 8)
