Hi,

Can anyone help me to identify the below fish? I am interested in starting a Malawi Cichlid Aquarium and did the big mistake of getting two fish from a friend who has an overstocked aquarium. Unfortunately he didn't know the name/scientific name of the fish he gave me!

Tried to identify then through internet search and "Metriaclima Zebra Black Mask Chizumulu" is my closest match but some ppl told me that it might be an OB Peacock!

Ps. Very important for me to at least determine if it is an Mbuna or Peacock as I need to determine what other species to introduce to the tank.

They look vague, but lean towards Mbuna. Probably hybrids. The mouths don't seem very Zebra like.

Far as a tank, make it an Mbuna tank, they will be okay. Those OB "Peacocks" are hybrids anyway and do okay with Mbuna.
