Hi, fish was sold to me as Labeotropheus Trewavasae Chilumba Red, but the snout is not as prominent as the others. Is this normal?

here's the picture of the other fish:

I agree. The body is a bit full for trewavasae on the second one, which could explain why the first one looks questionable.

I wonder if there is something else mixed in there...These both came from the same source?
That one looks very nice, but still a bit full in the body for a trewavasae, but it could just be the angle of the pic.
It's impossible to say for sure. Trewavasae have such a distinct body shape, and it's hard to see in some of these fish, but they could also be on the chubby side, or just not as elongated as they will be once they are fully mature, and that could be throwing things off.

They just look full bodied to me for 3.5 inches!
