We recently purchased some new fish and I wrote down the names while in the LFS. I came home and could not find the names of one these fish in the profiles. After googling this is what I came up with. What you you think? :)

Aulonocara koningsi
Aulonocara carolinae
I believe the larger one is the Aulonocara carolinae (which I could not find a profile for, but this is what I wrote at the LFS. The small one I wrote down Aulonocara stuartgranti Mbenji. After not finding a profile and doing some research I came up with Aulonocara koningsi

Aulonocara carolinae ?

Aulonocara koningsi


Any way sorry for the long post. I am happy with both fish just wanted a little more info on them.

I'm not certain what the first one is.

The second one could be a jacobfriebergi type, but the striations in the tail fin aren't a characteristic of this type, which often suggestions hybridization.

I don't believe the blue one is Aulonocara carolinae, it looks more like a Blue Regal or maybe a stuartgranti, but im not positive on either guess. I have both, but mine haven't completely colored out yet. How big is the blue one?
