Tropheus Kambwimba Red Rainbow? Just kidding :lol:

I'd say your frontosa are a Zaire type.

Charles,

What makes you say tanz? I was going by the zoro mask.

Thanks,
Russ

Thanks Charles. I have trouble telling the difference when they are that young. The color did seem lighter to me (still a very pretty though). It has been a long time since I had any tanz. Here's an old pic of my Mpimbwe at the fry stage (it's the best I have). Wish I'd have taken more pics of them. I guess they did have that zoro mask. Not easy for me to tell.



Here's some Zaire fry

I agree with Charles on his point.
Very difficult with ID of juvies by photo, so many variables.
Both of us have raised fry of both, and indeed you can sometimes doubt what you have.

even with adults, my Alpha kitumba fades so bad that he does not look Zaire 90% of the time.

The top pix are blurry and could be anything you asked, mpimbwe, moba or mix.
the bottom 4th pix that is the most clear looks the most mpimbwe or other tanzanian type.

I'm sticking with them being a Zaire type (IMO).

The new pics are more Zaire like, which goes to show you what different pix will do.

Would not be able to get a actual collection point, as i have had all 3 Zaire, and there are members that look identical to the other CP's.
