hi guys,

I am new here I have a 90 litre tank set up with four Malawi cichlids and just have a few questions, I need help identifying the species of the two grey coloured cichlids in the picture, also I have two yellow labs which I need help sexing. I know I have one female as she is currently mouthbrooding fry when I brought her but I'm not sure of the other pictured below, or the sex of the two other cichlids.

also what's your recommended stocking level for a tank this size?

regards

Left in first pic... Solid blue with line in dorsal = Socolofi

Middle lower in first pic... Light royal blue with black horizontal lines = Johanni type like Maingano. Many of these types are not pure, but it is a Johanni type.

Right center in first pic... All yellow non holding = prob Yellow Lab X Red Zebra hybrid which are very common because they are colourful and sell. A Yellow Lab should have the black line in the dorsal

Not sure of the length of the tank, but that tank seems too small for a Mbuna tank. You need a dozen fish or more in a bigger tank, or you end up with one fish making the other 3 fish hide, and they may get beaten up.
