Here is my first tank. They are in a 75g. I have had them for about two weeks and still trying to figure them all out. Only real problem is the Zebras(?). I think I have too many males, so I may want to trade to get some more females. Thanks for the help!

1- Red Zebra? Seems to the be the Alpha, really give the one below a hard time and will chase him all over



2- Red Zebra? Seems male as he get chased by the guy above, but I have seen him challenge so of the other fish as well



3- Yellow Lab? Not sure on the sex. Poor thing does not have a tail



4- Yellow Lab? Not sure on the sex



5- Yellow Lab Hybrid? Not sure on sex

Hard as they are so young and some not yet in great shape.

My best shot

1 maybe estherae but maybe other too young to be sure I think.
2 Young "Gold Peacock Hybrid" I think.
3 Yep yellow lab poor thing though looks to be doing fine without a tail.
4 not sure if hybrid or just poorly coloured
5 not sure but think your prob right
6 M.lombardoi (Kenyi) young. If male will turn yellow.
7 ?
8 ?
9 Young Aulonocara ?species
10 ? think its a cobalt but not sure.
11 ? Pseudotropheus saulosi just taking on male colours maybe?

Only confident about number 6. :oops: :)

All the best James

1. Need a better pic of head, but tentatively estherae.
2. YLxRZ hybrid.
3. YL.
4. I'm going with hybrid.
5. Again, hybrid. Maybe some perlmutt?
6. Kenyi
7. Kenyi hybrid.
8. No idea.
9. Agreed, young peacock.
10. I'll say callainos, too.
11. Definitely not saulosi. I'd say another hybrid.

sceptical on 10. Looks like a callainos x something to me. Don't callainos have yellow egg spots?

what an interesting mix

your tailless yellow lab is lucky your taking care of it. Thats one of those stand out fish, at first i thought it was just bending in the picture as if turning around. Realized no back end. Hopefully it doesnt get bullied, seems special. I had 2 red zebra females with no tail, they lived for 2 more years, they eventually got along fine.

1,2 ... poor quality Red Zebra
3,4,5 ... very poor quality Yellow Labs. Maybe you could feel sorry for the tailless Yellow one. Does the second one have a deformed gill? 4 and 5 are unlikely to ever get more yellow.
6... Kenyi
7... kenyi hybrid probably
8, 11... M. zebra type probably poorly bred. C. afra would be the only other possibility.
9... Yellow Peacock group
10... M. callainos "Cobalt Zebra"
