1st Pic - Any ideas, love this fish but he (think its a he!) is becoming extremely aggressive to everything in the tank so looks like will have to go.

2nd Pic - 2 Fish on the right hand bottom side, only had them a couple of weeks but lost the piece of paper when got them and cant remember what they are!

3rd Pic - 2 Fish on bottom left, big red one and the yellow ish one with a different coloured face, any ideas? Yellow ish one is getting heavily picked on by the fish in the first pic.

4th Pic - Fish on the bottom to the right hand side with the yellow fins?

Any help much appreciated, if you can say Male or Female aswell that would be excellent!

The bicolored one in the second pic could be a Trophops sp. "Red Cheek."

Ps. Saulosi is my guess on the first picture.

Well the yellow ish one looks like it could be a yellow lab. But it looks like a hybrid (I have never seen one that looks like that, with it's face a different color). Either it's a hybrid or it is sick. The first one looks like a desmoni hybrid. Then again I am defiently not an expert.

Definately not a lab or sick, been the same colour for 9 months or so, turns out appears to be a Salousi which is changing sex, news to me!

Ow Ow..I think the first one is a Pseudotropheus sp. "Elongatus Ornatus" check it out and tell me if it looks like yours. I personally think it does!
Yeah everyone has said elongatus on that one so well done! Pic doesnt show much but its much bigger than a demasoni.

The body doesn't look like an elongatus to me, but can u post another picture in a different angle?

Here's a photo of my Ps. Elongatus w/ 9 vertical bars: :D

Nice fish! Its probably the hardest fish to get a picture of in my tank other than the catfish but will try.

Did have a few demasoni in the tank before and they looked very different.
